"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
American Politics and Society is a clear and concise introduction to US politics which explains, analyses and interprets the processes of US government and, crucially, appraises them from a non-US perspective.
This completely revised new edition takes in the many changes which have occurred in recent years and explores the political and ideological polarization which some commentators see as a significant characteristic of US politics and society today. Engaging with such issues as the rapidly changing balance of support for the Democrats and Republicans and the continuing decline in the global reputation of the United States, the book provides an up-to-date survey of the views and criticisms of leading political commentators, including commentary on the 2008 presidential election.
Written in an accessible style and packed with illustrations and pedagogical features, this book offers a fresh look at the social background to American political and economic life, the institutions and processes of government, and the most recent and dramatic events in the political arena.
