Summary

Since its First Edition in 1980, American Government has been the undisputed leader for AP American government and politics. It focuses on three fundamental topics: the institutions of American government; the historical development of governmental procedures, actors, and policies; and who governs in America and to what ends. The text provides outstanding coverage of public policy including seven chapters on policy-making, domestic policy, and foreign policy. This edition includes coverage of the 2002 congressional elections, the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act, and the G.W. Bush presidency. An updated box program provides students with summaries of important information and encourages critical thinking. Each chapter is now prefaced with an outline and concludes with a list of Internet resources. Enhanced coverage of the governmental process explores the workings of Congress and how a bill becomes a law. Each chapter now concludes with answers to the Enduring Questions--posed at the beginning of each chapter--to encourage synthesis and critical thinking. Suggested Web links provide opportunities to independently research American politics.
