Overview

Distinguished by its "myth vs. reality" framework, AMERICAN GOVERNMENT, 9E encourages students to confront their preconceptions about American government and to think critically about the U.S. political system. Up-to-date content addresses issues such as the media, public opinion, the Supreme Court, domestic and international policy, education and environmental policies, and economic and social welfare. The Ninth Edition features full coverage of the groundbreaking 2008 elections. AMERICAN GOVERNMENT, 9E offers comprehensive resources for both instructors and students. As part of the Student Choice series, the Ninth Edition has been fully redesigned with pedagogical features such as section summaries and "CheckPoint" questions to help students understand material; a marginal glossary; and Focus Question Reviews that provide a point-by-point summaries of each chapter's main ideas, to engage students and help those readers who may struggle with reading comprehension.
