9780393931235: American Government: Power and Purpose, Core Tenth Edition

American Government does more than any other text to get students to think analytically about American politics and government. The successful Five Principles of Politics framework integrated throughout the full and core versions helps students make sense of the material they encounter in the course, and the political information they encounter in their daily lives. In this Tenth Edition, new "Analyzing the Evidence" units in each chapter use bold graphics to show how data and basic methodology illuminate key political phenomena, and a new online reader offers students easy access to readings from over 100 recent articles and foundational works cited in the text. This Tenth Core Edition does not includes the policy chapters of the Tenth Full Edition.
