"Can the government govern?" "How can we provide the presidency enough power without providing too much?" "Do elections matter?" These and other simple yet provocative questions are the bases for Lowi and Ginsberg's distinctive historical and institutional approach. With Lowi and Ginsberg's rich presentation, students gain a deeper understanding of why today's institutions function as they do and how these institutions interact, making the book a classroom success year after year, edition after edition.
