America at Odds: The Essentials
Wadsworth/Thomson Learning, Jul 27, 2001 - Political Science - 431 pages
This text addresses all of the major topics of an American government course, including elections, Congress, public policy, and so on. However, unlike many introductory texts, it emphasizes a more topical and provocative point/counterpoint approach that explores the conflicts that truly define America as a nation. Each chapter includes a discussion of a significant political issue and presents both sides of that issue, showing how and why Americans are often politically at odds with each other. Does not contain three chapters on public policy that are part of AMERICA AT ODDS: THIRD EDITION.
