Synopsis

The New American Democracy by Morris P. Fiorina, Paul E. Peterson, Bertram Johnson, William G. Mayer

With an emphasis on elections and their importance in the American political system, this groundbreaking offers a stimulating, analytical approach to American government and a unique perspective on contemporary politics. Noted scholars and teachers all, the authors propose in their text that politicians today are perpetually engaged in the election process--a permanent campaign --which has profoundly affected how our government functions today. The proliferation of public opinion polls, the growing influence of the Internet, the ubiquitous nature of the news media, and the increasingly important role of interest groups--all demonstrate that America is moving toward a more popular democracy and have blurred the lines between politicians campaigning and governing. The sixth edition of this prestigious text will have been brought completely up-to-date through the end of the George W. Bush administration and 2008 Presidential Election, by its publication. The alternate version of The New American Democracy includes the exact same coverage as the comprehensive version without the policy chapters.
