Description

For courses in Introduction to American Government.Using a unique approach that clearly captures the dynamic nature of politics, this introduction to American government weaves together the threads of constancy (history), contradictions, and change and shows how the political system will likely react, adapt, and adjust to the changes ahead. It considers the wide array of racial and political minorities that have influenced the development of the American political system and why it is so difficult to discover and serve "the public interest."show more
