9780205780167: The New American Democracy (7th Edition)

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.
