A provocative, sometimes irreverent, often witty, and always informative look at the fundamental institutions and topics of American government! Well documented with illustrative examples, this text offers a critical and entertaining survey of American government. It conveys a sense of the corruptibility of people and institutions, and offers reasons for the concentration of wealth in the hands of the few.
