About the Author:

Samuel Kernell is professor of political science at the University of California, San Diego, where he has taught since 1977. Previously, he taught at the University of Mississippi and the University of Minnesota. Kernell’s research interests focus on the presidency and American political history. His previous books include Going Public: New Strategies of Presidential Leadership, 3rd edition; an edited collection of essays, James Madison: The Theory and Practice of Republican Government; and, with Gary C. Jacobson, The Logic of American Politics, 7th edition, and Strategy and Choice in Congressional Elections, 2nd edition. 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 have been using The Logic of American Politics for ten years, and of all the introductory textbooks on American politics, this is the best. It has a well-carried theme throughout, is comprehensive, and always reflects updated political science research." Author: Danny Hayes

"The Logic of American Politics is the best textbook on the market for those instructors seeking to emphasize the concepts of institutional design and collective action. This thematic focus helps introductory students truly understand American government and politics. What is more, the text pushes students to think analytically about the topic while engaging them with both current and historical narratives in American politics." Author: Patrick Wohlfarth

"The Logic of American Politics is a well-written and thorough introduction that incorporates helpful and contemporary examples. It is the best textbook that I have come across in the subject of American politics and the discipline of political science." Author: Ashley Moraguez

Book Depository International
(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. 8th Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Eight Edition is thoroughly updated and includes the dramatic 2016 election results and a thorough analysis of those results. It continues to delve into partisan differences among voters and in government and highlight the increasingly partisan nature of campaigns. By exploring issues such as the Affordable Care Act's troubled implementation, the increasing legalization of marijuana and same-sex marriage in the states, and the debate over immigration, the book illustrates how the institutional structures of government, federalism, and even campaigns can help voters make sense of their choices. The concluding chapter on policymaking examines the noticeable logic that guides American policy, as shown through policies like health care reform, global climate change, and the federal budget. Students glean insights into the sources of policy problems, identify possible solutions, and realize why agreement on those solutions is often so hard to achieve.
