Kernell’s most recent book, Party Ballots, Reform and the Transformation of American Politics, (2015, with Erik Engstrom), won the APSA′s David Greenstone Award for the best book in politics and history.Review:
"I love Kernell and Smith. It helps me to connect the things that political scientists have to say about politics with what students think they know about politics." Author: Marc Hetherington
"The best thing about Principles and Practice is that it provides key excerpts from some of the most important political science articles in American politics. A ten-page reading is much more productive for students than the entire article, especially for undergrads." Author: Aaron King, University of North Carolina at Wilmington
"I use Principles and Practice as a reader to stimulate discussion and encourage students to wrestle with some of the fundamental debates about how the political process works. I also like to use it as a way to introduce students to empirical approaches to answering questions about American government." Author: David Doherty
"I am pleased with Principles and Practice in American Politics, and my students are as well. It has lots of different options per topic and does a good job of blending contemporary pieces with classics." Author: Logan Dancey
