Publisher Comments:

This best-selling American government text is highly acclaimed for the non-ideological framework it uses to explore three themes: freedom, order, and equality as political values; the majoritarianism versus pluralism debate; and globalization's effect on American politics. Extensively updated, this edition includes new examples, figures, data, and current discussions. The authors include balanced coverage of the first two years of the Obama administration, coverage and analysis of the 2010 mid-term election, and a retrospective of the Bush presidency. The Eleventh Edition can be packaged with Aplia, which offers students automatically graded homework assignments. Organized by chapter, Aplia helps provides students immediate, detailed explanations and helps them come to class better prepared for discussion.
