9780023377709: New American Democracy, The

With an emphasis on elections and their importance in our political system, Morris Fiorina and Paul Peterson's groundbreaking text offers a stimulating, analytical approach to American government that engages students as it gives them a unique understanding of their political system as it exists and functions today. The accessibility of instant public opinion polls, the growing influence of Internet, the ubiquitous nature of the news media, and the increasingly important role of interest groups--all of which Fiorina and Peterson use to demonstrate that America is moving toward a more popular democracy--have blurred the lines between campaigning and governing. Politicians today are constantly engaged in the campaign process--a "permanent campaign"--this has profoundly affected how our government functions today. The fifth edition of this presitgious text has been brought completely up-to-date through the second George W. Bush administration and 2006 midterm elections, includes engaging debate-style readings throughout, and is now available in a unique "Sandbox" format that allows instructors to seamlessly blend text chapters with policy material and/or selections from the "Great Questions in Politics" series.

Updated in a new 7th edition, The New American Democracy offers a stimulating, analytical approach to American government and a unique perspective on contemporary politics with an emphasis on elections and their importance in the American political system. The authors -- among the most well-known and well-respected scholars working in political science today --propose in their text that politicians today are perpetually engaged in the election process—a “permanent campaign”—which has profoundly affected how our government functions today.

From the Back Cover:

Written by THE names in American politics, this book is a thorough introduction to American Government. The New American Democracy covers all the standard topics-the Constitution, federalism, Congress, the presidency, public policy-but does so offering a rich electoral perspective. In addition to showing the new, increasingly important role of elections in American democracy, the book's vision includes a strong comparative dimension, with references to international governments throughout. Those involved in American government-would-be politicians, lawyers, teachers.
