UNDERSTANDING AMERICAN GOVERNMENT is highly respected and trusted for its attention to research and issues of diversity as well as for its award-winning team of authors. While covering the foundations and features of American government, this text also moves beyond the nuts and bolts to explain why and how important features of government have evolved, what their impact on government and individuals is, and why these features are controversial (if they are) and worth learning. More than just narrating facts and current issues, UNDERSTANDING AMERICAN GOVERNMENT leaves students with an understanding of the "why" so that they can apply what they've learned long after completing the course. UNDERSTANDING AMERICAN GOVERNMENT is a three-time winner of the American Government Textbook Award for the Best Treatment of Women in Politics, awarded by the Women's Caucus for Political Science.

Susan Welch received her AB and PhD degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is currently Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Professor of Political Science at The Pennsylvania State University. Her teaching and research areas include legislatures, urban politics, and women and minorities in politics. She publishes widely on issues of race, gender, and urban politics.Review:
"I have been using the Welch text on and off over the years, and it has always had the right nuts and bolts without going into odd directions. The emphasis on diversity is excellent. I have been a reviewer more than once of the Women's Caucus Award, and I've read texts that were good examples of who should not win the award. The attention to diversity is critical in our time." --Terri Fine, University of Central Florida
"I especially like the background discussion on the formation of the Constitution. The authors do a good job of examining the 'why' here, and the chapter is clear, concise, and fits together nicely." --Richard Hungate, Joliet Junior College
"I appreciate the use of student-friendly language, not obtuse verbiage, in conveying the 'why' of politics and its relevance to our daily lives." --Griffin Hathaway, Illinois Central College
