Editorial Reviews

Chapters are written to encourage students to reflect on the reasons for and consequences of the changes that the electorate appears to be demanding in light of the 1994 and 1996 elections. They examine how the United States is governed today by looking not just at present behavior but also at the Framers' intentions and how they have been implemented and adapted over the years. In addition to questions raised by the Framers, issues that the Framers could never have envisioned are explored. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
This updated edition includes the results of the 2000 presidential and Congressional elections, as well as information on the primaries and general campaign. O'Connor (government, American U.) and Sabato (government and foreign affairs, U. of Virginia) present 19 chapters that discuss the foundations and institutions of government, political behavior, and public policy. In each chapter, boxed information compares and contrasts some aspect of American politics to that of other industrial democracies. Includes many color and b&w illustrations. The included CD-ROM contains the full text of the book as well as audio, video, web links, practice tests, and more. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
