From the Publisher"Perspectives on American Government is a perfect book for any Introduction to American Government class. The blend of original sources, classic research, and contemporary scholarship provides a wide range of material for class discussion. All types of students will find something that motivates them to dig deeper into the fundamental questions of democracy, representation, power, and policy."
—David Ciuk, Franklin & Marhshal University
"The mix of classic and contemporary readings selected in this volume do a terrific job illustrating the complexity and layering of American political dynamics. Classic articles depict the contributions of seminal figures in American political development, and contemporary articles illustrate how American politics have developed over time. Where this volume is especially strong is in connecting the past developments to current problems. Jillson and Robertson’s prose is straightforward and the explanations for students are accessible."
—Jonathan Chausovsky, State University of New York, Fredonia
"I have used the first edition previously and while it was very useful in giving the student a deeper insight, this Second Edition is even better. In my opinion, the best ‘Readings’ available."
—Stephen Clay Anthony, Georgia State University
