"Once again, McKay has delivered an excellent introduction to US politics. American Politics and Society is not just a re-write of previous editions, but a genuinely up-to-date and engaging volume that embraces recent developments in the US political system." Jon Herbert, University of Keele "Since it was first published I have always used David McKay's text for teaching American politics since it is ideal for introducing the subject to British students. This new edition is greatly to be welcomed. It is up-to-date and, like its predecessors, accessible and interesting for students. American Society and Politics will - deservedly - be a core text on numerous introductory courses." David Denver, Lancaster UniversityReseña del editor:
Completely revised and updated to take full account of the most recent and dramatic changes in the nature of American government, this sixth edition provides a clear and concise introduction to US politics for all students of political science and American studies. This work: explains, analyses and interprets the processes of US government and, crucially, appraises them from a non-US perspective; includes commentary on the 2004 presidential election; and, fills in the social background to American political and economic life, preparing the ground for the central discussion of the book: the institutions of the federal government, Congress, the Supreme Court and the Constitution, the federal system, the Presidency, the party bandwagons and the electoral system.It features reduced emphasis on limited government and greater emphasis on foreign and domestic policy linked into the War on Terror. It is reworked throughout to reflect recent developments, with two completely new chapters on The Media and American Politics, and The Security State. It is supported by a website including information on the book; its detailed contents; the author; controversies; sample chapters; selected tables; related titles; and, links to other web resources. It will be regularly updated to ensure teachers and students have access to the most recent data.
