Since its initial publication in 1990, American Government has set the standard for American government texts with its distinctive historical and institutional approach. The Seventh Edition raises the bar yet again with the addition of new co-author Kenneth A. Shepsle and a thorough renewal of the text. New to the Seventh Edition are increased attention to the analytic narrative; emphasis on fundamental, underlying principles of politics; and a critical examination of institutional reform. With meaningful pedagogy throughout the text and an outstanding multimedia instructional package, American Government leads students to analyze the core principles of politics and to understand how these principles influence American political development. Available with chapters on policy (Full Version, Seventh Edition) and without (Core Seventh Edition).
