Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every AP government student should be exposed to a robust sampling of the premiere literature in the discipline. In this effective mix of classic and contemporary pieces, students read meaty excerpts from such scholars as Robert Putnam, David R. Mayhew, and James Q. Wilson while following current, pressing issues in articles from leading newspapers and journals. Each reading is introduced by a headnote that shows how political actors, though motivated by their own interests, are governed by the Constitution, the law, institutional rules, and the strategies of others. The perfect pairing to The Logic of American Politics, 2nd edition, order both books shrinkwrapped together for extra student savings. Specify ISBN 1-568027-7966. ($84.95)

Book News Annotation:

Kernell (political science, U. of California at San Diego) and Smith (political science, Washington U., St. Louis) present 47 readings (19 held over from the first edition) that together review the basic political science of U.S. federal institutions, political actors, and processes. Also discussed are common themes of American political history such as federalism, civil rights and liberties, public opinion, and interest groups.
