Summary

This popular brief edition text for the one-semester or one-quarter American Government course maintains the framework of Wilson's complete text, emphasizing the historical development of the American political system, who governs, and to what end. The Eighth Edition features thoroughly updated examples, figures, and tables and coverage through the 2006 mid-term elections.

  • New! Civil liberties and civil rights coverage has been divided into two chapters, providing more depth.
  • New! Up-to-date coverage includes the 2006 congressional elections.
  • New! Web-based course content in Eduspace, Houghton Mifflin's online teaching and learning tool, includes graded homework, primary sources, Associated Press Interactive animations, simulations, writing assignments, writing tutorials, discussion assignments, threaded message board, video clips of election ads, teaching suggestions, and the Test Bank.
  • Students learn to think critically and synthesize the material with chapter-opening Enduring Questions and chapter-closing Reconsidering the Enduring Questions, mini-essays that expand on the classic issues of democracy.
  • Box features call out basic information that students should know in order to fully engage in the chapter material.
  • Additional in-text pedagogy includes a marginal glossary, end-of-chapter summaries, suggested web links, and recommended readings.
