Review:

The best selection yet of readings necessary for an introduction to American politics and highly appropriate for undergraduates. -- Mark P. Petracca, University of California, Irvine

This is an excellent book; presenting the issues before the "debate" from several different perspectives is a fine idea. -- Gloria T. Cohen-Dion, Bloomsburg University
