About the Author:

Kenneth Janda is the Payson S. Wild Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Northwestern University. Dr. Janda has published extensively in comparative party politics, research methodology, and early use of computer technology in political science, for which he received awards from EDUCOM and support from Apple Computer. His APSA awards include the Samuel Eldersveld Lifetime Achievement Award (2000) and the Frank J. Goodnow Award for distinguished service to the profession and the association (2009). Dr. Janda and fellow author Jerry Goldman shared APSA technology awards in 1992 for IDEAlog, the computer program, and in 2005 for IDEAlog, the website.

Jeffrey M. Berry is the John Richard Skuse Professor of Political Science at Tufts University. He was an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, and received his doctorate from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Berry is a recipient of the APSA's Samuel Eldersveld Lifetime Achievement Award (2009) and numerous "best book" awards -- from the APSA for The Rebirth of Urban Democracy (1994), from the Policy Studies Organization for The New Liberalism (1999), from the APSA for A Voice for Nonprofits (2004), and from the APSA for Lobbying and Political Change (2009). His most recent book is The Outrage Industry: Political Opinion Media and the New Incivility (with Sarah Sobieraj).

Jerry Goldman is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Northwestern University. Dr. Goldman is the 2010 recipient of the first APSA/CQ Press Award for Teaching Innovation in Political Science. He has received many other awards, including the American Bar Association's Silver Gavel for increasing the public's understanding of the law, the EDUCOM Medal, and the Roman & Littlefield Prize for Teaching Innovation. In 2012, Dr. Goldman made the Fastcase 50, "the fifty most interesting, provocative, and courageous leaders in the world of law, scholarship, and legal technology." Through the Oyez Project at oyez.org, which uses images, and audio to bring the Supreme Court alive, he has brought the U.S. Supreme Court closer to everyone.

Deborah J. Schildkraut is professor of political science at Tufts University. She is the author of Americanism in the Twenty-First Century: Public Opinion in the Age of Immigration (2011), Press "One" for English: Language Policy, Public Opinion, and American Identity (2005), and several other research articles. Her research focuses on the implications of the changing ethnic composition of the United States on public opinion in a variety of domains. Professor Schildkraut has received awards from the American Political Science Association for the best book published in the field of political psychology (2012) and for the best paper presented in the field of elections, public opinion, and voting behavior (2009). She has served on the Board of Overseers for the American National Election Study and as a reviewer for the National Science Foundation.

Review:

"I started using this book when I was a teaching assistant at the University of Arkansas. What I liked then and still do is that use of a consistent theme-freedom, order, equality-throughout the book. I think that most students tend to think one of those values should always be government's only pursuit. The book makes the students view the other side."

"I like the textbook. I appreciate the work done to incorporate recent judicial developments as well as congressional activity, not to mention the updates on the 2012 election. . . . The chapters on civil liberties and civil rights have always been my favorites. I like the weaving of historical cases with current cases. It is critical that students learn the history as well as current developments."
