This comprehensive reader for the American government course provides articles and commentary from a broad array of political commentators and practitioners. Readings are arranged topically to match the typical organization of the American government course, but a cross-referenced table of contents allows instructors and students to find resources and make connections across the chapters. Features: * Unifying theme of governance emphasizes the interaction between governmental institutions and non-governemental aspects of U.S. policy, such as political parties, the media, the economy, and state and local governemtns. * Both conservative and liberal positions are well represented throughout by a broad selection of both classic readings and lively journalistic selections. * Coverage of corruption and abuse of power, as well as coverage of alternative futures provides perspectives often missing in political readers. * Introductory essays for each of 16 sections provide a broad context and background for reading. * Key concepts offer easy review of important terms used in each selection. * Chapter Headnotes provide a one or two paragraph introduction to each selection. * Points to Ponder follow each selection and give students directions for further thought.
