About this title:
Synopsis:

Understand American politics from past to present

 

American Government: Roots and Reform, 2012 Election Edition explores how the origins of American government affect the issues facing the United States today.  This bestselling text offers the strongest coverage of history and current events.  This approach encourages students to study present political structures and behaviors in full constitutional and historical context. The text helps students learn how our government evolved and how they can become more informed citizens.  Most importantly, it encourages them to discover that politics can be—and most often is—a good thing.

 

This text features full integration with the New MyPoliSciLab.  MyPoliSciLab includes a wide array of resources to encourage students to look at American politics like a political scientist and analyze current political issues.  Political Explorer lets students play the role of a political scientist by investigating issues through interactive data.  Core Concept videos discuss the big ideas in each chapter and apply them to key political issues. Simulations allow students to experience how political leaders make decisions.
