More About This Textbook

Overview

Since Barack Obama became our 44th president on January 20, 2009, the United States has experienced seismic changes across the political landscape. In response, several of Pearson's best-selling authors of American government books have come together, under one cover, to put those changes, events, and issues into perspective. The result is a rare collection of engaging essays and trenchant analyses that capture a historic year in the politics of our country.

In Obama: Year One you will find out what the best minds and writers in political science have to say about our new president a year into his administration. They will update you on the impact Obama has had, and is having, on numerous fronts-including the nature of our political campaigns, economic stimulus, U.S. Policies in Iraq and Afghanistan, and healthcare reform. The authors will also discuss the world events and political climate that are, for better or worse, shaping our new president-from the economic recession of 2008 and 2009 to the current state of America's "culture war" to the presidential media environment.
