Acclaimed for the scholarship of its prominent authors and the clarity of its narrative, American Government sets the standard for public policy coverage while maintaining focus on three fundamental topics: the institutions of American government; the historical development of governmental procedures, actors and policies; and who governs in the United States and to what end. Student involvement in the material is bolstered by proven pedagogical features such as chapter outlines, suggested Web links for research, and How Things Work boxes that summarize important facts. The greatly enhanced media package with new online tools makes the learning experience engaging and accessible.
