REVEL for Politics in America, 2016 Presidential Election -- Access Card / Edition 11

See who gets what, when and how, in American politics
Revel™ Politics in America introduces students to the political struggles that drive democracy, examining the participants, the stakes, the processes, and the institutional arenas that comprise the power game of American politics. Using Harold Lasswell’s classic definition of politics — “who gets what, when and how” — as their unifying framework, authors Ronald Keith Gaddie and Thomas Dye present balanced arguments on highly sensitive issues including abortion, gun control, same-sex marriage, marijuana decriminalization, and immigration reform. In order to boost student engagement, the 2016 Presidential Election Edition incorporates coverage of contemporary issues that dominate today’s headlines, as well as the most up-to-date data.
