Summary:
  • The text explores the way democracy responds to challenges from diverse constituencies or dramatic public events. The book emphasizes the gap that exists between myth and reality in government today.
  • "Myth vs. Reality" boxes help to integrate the theme "Democracy Under Pressure" within the context of individual chapters while sharpening the critical aspects of the content.
  • Coverage of Hispanic, Asian and Native American minorities in U.S. politics and in the population at large, including material on immigration laws and proposals by the Bush Administration.
  • The design of the text highlights the chapter opening vignettes, which provide real-life examples of the material presented in the chapter. Each opening section is followed by a key question that provides a framework of inquiry for that chapter to engage the student to think critically more critically about the readings.
  • "Questions to Consider" in each chapter focus on critical thinking and are integrated by icons with the study guide & website so students can research and answer questions posed in the text.
  • "Making a Difference" boxes profile the ability of individuals to have an impact on the political process through participation.
  • "Comparing Government" boxes give readers context by relating how world governments (besides our own) approach various political processes, institutions, and issues.
  • "The American Past" boxes provide the historical context essential for understanding the origins and evolution of the nation's political institutions and today's controversies.
  • Student-friendly pedagogy includes bold-faced terms, bulleted chapter highlights, and an end-of-chapter list of key terms with page references
