Overview

American Government: Politics and Political Culture provides a comprehensive introduction to American politics, drawing students into the material by showing the relevance that political culture has to our everyday lives. This text is ideal for students who have not previously been exposed to government and politics beyond high school civics classes, as well as for students interested in the Â"whysÂ" and Â"howsÂ" of political events as opposed to the Â"whens.Â" The emphasis on the political values, expectations, and beliefs of American citizens distinguishes American Government from other texts. Lyons and Scheb continually address the interplay between political culture and our institutions, political campaigns, and the way questions of policy are framed and implemented.
