THE ENDURING DEMOCRACY offers a current and comprehensive introduction to American government and politics, explored through an historical lens. The book helps students understand that debates and events being played out today have occurred before in different forms-and that our government endures. Updates include complete coverage of the 2014 midterm elections; the policy agenda for the final two years of the Obama administration; a primer on the polls, parties, and context for the 2016 presidential election; substantial coverage of the growing impact of social media on American politics; and new historical perspectives on implementation problems associated with major federal programs such as Obamacare. Also included are updated timelines that highlight significant events in each chapter and a new feature that emphasizes the relevance of major U.S. Supreme Court decisions and how they influence students' everyday lives.
