Extensively updated, this edition includes new examples, figures, and data and current discussions on such topics as the 2006 Congressional election, the Bush administration, campaign finance reform, Hurricane Katrina and FEMA, immigration policy, MEDICARE, and more.Continuing to offer leading-edge technology for teaching and learning, the program now offers course content in Eduspace, Blackboard, and WebCT formats. Additional media tools include the new In Our Own Words feature--downloadable chapter overviews in MP3 format narrated by the authors--and marginal references to the award-winning site, IDEAlog.org.

This book is required reading for my Intro to American Politics class, and I found it to be an enjoyable textbook. It presents the material in a straight forward and easy to understand manner, while touching upon the tougher issues that would be covered in an advanced course. It has a good number of illustrations and examples, and presents a thorough summary of the basics of American Politics.
I had a woman tell me that the book stays the same except for chapter 14 , I found out from my professor that we won't be covering chapter 14 so I bought an earlier edition than what was "required" by my professor. So far, the book has had all the same information. I'm very pleased right now :)
I love this book! I think everyone in América should have one. Its full of amazing and unbiased information. I used this book in a political science course that I took in college and have bought several more for other people! Its very well written and full of important information that is written in an easy to understand way!
