Summary

The only American Government text to take a comparative approach, Dunn and Slann's text doesn't simply offer comparative material in boxed features, but integrates it throughout the text to help students gain a deeper and more complete vision of our government by comparing and contrasting it to the governments of other nations. The new edition helps students learn what makes American government and politics distinctive and encourages them to see why it has endured for over 200 years. By presenting American government within a comprehensive comparative and global framework, the book exposes students to global issues and helps them to grow in cross-cultural understanding, while at the same time giving them a solid foundation in American government and politics.
