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.

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.About the Author:
