University of Indiana political scientists update their 2006 introductory textbook to incorporate the 2008 election that "...has turned some of our conventional wisdom about who gets what in American politics upside down." Showing how they are relevant, they cover key aspects of US politics including American political beliefs, the Constitution, struggles for equal rights, workings of the Federal bureaucracy, state and local politics in a Federal system, and policy areas including the environment, economics, and foreign affairs. The attractive but hefty volume includes color photos, "profiles in citizenship" boxes, critical thinking questions, practice quizzes, suggested resources, and appended documents and statistics. Supplemental resources for students and instructors are available.
