This best-selling book provides the historical context students need to understand our government and the most crucial and controversial issues affecting the nation in the 21st century.
American Government: Continuity and Change, has been extensively revised to provide the most in-depth and current coverage of the 2006 midterm elections, the second George W. Bush administration, the Iraq War, and increasing controversies related to the conduct of the war on terrorism, including renewed calls for additional congressional oversight of the Executive Branch.
