About this title


Focusing on electoral forces, Mo Fiorina and Paul Peterson's groundbreaking text offers a stimulating, analytical approach to American government that engages students as it gives them a unique understanding of their political system as it exists today. The accessibility of instant public opinion polls, the Internet, the ubiquitous nature of the news media, and the increasingly important role of interest groups--all of which Fiorina and Peterson use to demonstrate that America is moving toward a more popular democracy--have blurred the lines between campaigning and governing. Politicians today are constantly engaged in the campaign process--a "permanent campaign"--that has affected how our government functions in profound ways. The Third Edition of this highly respected text has been brought completely up-to-date through the beginning of Bush's administration, September 11th, the war on terrorism, and the 2002 midterm elections, and continues to be the only text available that addresses the fundamental shift in the way American government functions.

From the Back Cover:


The New American Democracy
Morris P. Fiorina · Paul E. Peterson · Bertram Johnson · William G. Mayer

The New American Democracy, 5th Edition, emphasizes the central role of elections in our political system and our evolution from a pluralist to a more popular democracy–and how both have profoundly changed the way American politics operates.

New to the Fifth Edition

  • The addition of a new co-author, William Mayer brings to the book additional expertise and a new perspective on key areas such as media and politics, and public opinion.
  • Expanded coverage! Several important topics, such as the relationship between the president and Congress, campaign finance reform, religious freedom, and globalization have increased in coverage.
  • Completely updated! Includes in-depth discussion of the 2006 midterm campaigns and elections, as well as updated chapter-opening vignettes, examples, data, and references throughout.
