American National Government: Institutions, Policy, and Participation
(The book) offers students and instructors both a traditional organization and the conciseness that has made earlier editions of this text so successful. The most important of many revisions in this edition is the inclusion of a complete study guide, bound into the book.... (The author) approaches his topics in a lively, often witty style that maintains student interest while conveying the author's respect and commitment to the principles of the American political system. -Back cover.
