Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This dynamic Beginners Guide covers everything you need to know about American politics today. Exploring the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, Jon Roper asks whether the politics of personality have become too pervasive in the USA. Tackling the nature of the presidency, American foreign policy, and President Obamas administration, this is a sharp analysis of how history has shaped the way America governs itself today. Including a section on how religion impacts American politics, this is the perfect introduction for anyone interested in the politics of the worlds oldest democratic republic. Jon Roper is a professor of American Studies who has taught at the University of Tennessee, the University of Wisconsin, and Ohio State University. He is the author of The Complete Illustrated Guide to the Presidents of America: An Authoritative History of the American Presidency.
