This is a bundled package of American Government, 7th edition, and New Directions in American Politics.
Cal Jillson’s American Government: Political Development and Institutional Change shows students how the nation’s past is present in all aspects of contemporary politics, using the dynamics of change as a tool to understand how politics works and how institutions, systems, avenues of participation, and policies have evolved over time to produce today’s political environment in the United States.
New Directions in American Politics introduces students not just to how the American political system works but also to how political science works. La Raja brings together top scholars to write original essays across the American government curriculum, capturing emerging research in the discipline in a way that is accessible for undergraduates. Contributors to New Directions combine substantive knowledge with skill-building analytical inquiry to highlight why the puzzles they seek to answer are critical for understanding American politics.
