Sense and Non-Sense : American Culture and Politics
For American Political Culture, American Government, Political Sociology, and Introduction to American Studies courses.Designed to introduce students to the ways that American culture structures the outcomes of political life, this text addresses American culture and politics with a three-phase approach: it first provides students with a careful analysis of what culture is, as well as its political significance; then offers four distinctive American cultural characteristics; and then encourages students to consider how these values influence modern political life.
