The American Political Process

Portada
Psychology Press, 2004 - 324 páginas

American Political Process examines both the formal institutions of government and organizations such as political parties and pressure groups. It analyzes how these bodies interact in the making of public policy in the United States in order to provide an understanding of contemporary American politics. The seventh edition has been thoroughly updated and revised with entirely new material on:

  • the 2000 Presidential election and George W. Bush's presidency
  • the September 11th attacks and the 'War on Terrorism'
  • the 2002 mid-term elections
  • controversial issues such as abortion and gun control.

Each chapter includes a variety of useful tables and diagrams, suggestions for further reading and relevant websites and a glossary of key terms. Written with admirable clarity, this is the ideal textbook for students of American politics and society.
