Building on decades of authoritative scholarship, this completely updated text continues to offer accessible, carefully crafted, and straightforward coverage of the foundations of American politics, as well consistent focus on the achievements of a government by the people
In an increasingly cynical world, GBTP emphasizes that politics matters and encourages, motivates, and even inspires students–with accounts of individual and collective acts of courageousness, intellect, and integrity in the political arena–to be effective and informed citizens.
With each chapter now framed by nationally-selected learning objectives and chapter mastery self-tests, several compelling new features, and an all new contemporary design, this thoroughly updated Twenty-Third Edition continues in the book’s long tradition for excellence. The Brief Edition includes the same coverage as the comprehensive version, but in a more streamlined format. As we enter this very complex political era, there is no more reliable or more relevant text to help you advance your students from being simple onlookers to knowledgeable participants in the American political experience.

History Makers.Reinforcing the importance of being an active participant in—and contributor to—political change, this inspirational feature profiles influential political figures, some contemporary, some historical. History Makers features active people representing divergent parties, ideologies, and agendas, but all sharing the common trait of engagement in the political process, from America's most important public servants to its ordinary, and sometimes, extraordinary, citizens, including FDR, LBJ, Martin Luther King, Jr., William Rehnquist, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
The Changing Face of U.S. Politics. Exemplifying the ever-increasing level of diversity in the American political landscape, including how race and gender are changing the way the American government works, these unique boxes reflect the concerns and experiences of ethnic and minority groups in American politics..
How Other Nations Govern. These data-rich boxes give students insight into foreign political structures and processes by looking at a diverse group of countries, including Britain, France, Japan, India, China, and Mexico, and showing how their approaches to government are similar to and different from those of the United States.
