Public Policy Perspective
The text frames the study of U.S. government within a public policy approach, focuses on the theme that “politics matters,” and gets students involved in politics with active learning features.
Government in America has been updated to reflect recent changes in politics, policy, and participation. Every figure and table has been updated with current data. In addition, there is new material on the following topics:
American Government examines how the United States is governed today by looking not just at present structures and behavior but also at the Framers’ intentions and how they have been implemented and adapted over the years.
The 14th edition includes the 2020 election of President Biden plus the 2022 Midterm Election updates. Many of the chapters open with new historical vignettes, and a new feature, Critical Thinking, provides a contextual window for political systems and allow students to explore diverse political perspectives on these big-picture questions. New Journal prompts require students to think critically about politics today in context of a worldwide pandemic and widespread actions against racial injustice.
