Distinguished by its myth vs. reality framework, AMERICAN GOVERNMENT, 10th EDITION, encourages you to confront your preconceptions about American government and to think critically about the U.S. political system. Up-to-date content addresses issues such as the media, public opinion, the Supreme Court, domestic and international policy, education and environmental policies, and economic and social welfare. The tenth edition also features coverage of the 2010 mid-term elections. Now part of the Advantage Series, AMERICAN GOVERNMENT offers the same quality coverage at a competitive price.
