Overview

A revision of our best selling supplement for American Government focusing on the events and aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on American Politics and Government, this second edition focuses on political and policy fallout from the attacks. Analysis in this topical booklet covers continuing effects of the attack on the media, Congress, the presidency, the courts, and policy outcomes, including 9/11 commission hearings, the war in Iraq, and the 2004 elections. Furthermore, this short, topical text is well grounded in historical context, considering how other major crises have been handled. Other areas typically covered in an American government course, such as the religion and public opinion are emphasized as well. Free when bundled.
