Show students how politics really works through a focus on conflict and compromise.
This newly updated fourth edition of American Politics Today helps students understand the conflicts and compromises inherent in politics and allows them to practice applying that understanding to the debates and controversies they encounter in the news. By focusing on such pivotal topics as conflict and compromise, students are able to see how institutions and political processes really work.

Incorporating several of the successful features of We the People, the text emphasizes critical thinking and the relevance of state government to students’ everyday lives. Governing California can be used with any Norton American government textbook or on its own.
