Learn how American politics affect public policy
Government in America, 2012 Election Edition looks at government’s impact on the daily lives of Americans with a public policy approach. This text introduces the main features of American politics and asks “how should we govern?” and “what should government do?” Government in America helps students see that politics drives what government can–or cannot do–for the people.
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.

“Government in America is a tour de force. Attention to detail, good historical coverage, and up-to-date developments in American politics make the book attractive and relevant to students. Visually, the book is rich, and the pedagogical tools are useful. One excellent feature of each chapter is the conclusion, which relates the chapter to the themes of democracy and the scope of government.”—Jeneen Hobby, Cleveland State University
