Reviews

Understanding American Politics and Government empowers students to think more analytically and provides them with a sharper understanding about politics. A superior approach to understanding the intellectual process of answering political questions, this book is superb in every way! -Dave Adler, Idaho State University Understanding American Politics and Government is distinct from other introductory American politics texts in that it introduces students to the work of political science-particularly how to establish causality-while refraining from advocating for a single theoretical approach. -Stacey Pelika, College of William & Mary I like the way the authors are able to grab the reader's attention at the very beginning of the chapter and keep it focused with excellent writing, explanations, examples, and current case studies. -Wayne Ault, Southwestern Illinois College
