Review

"For those looking for a concise overview of American government and politics, this superb book will be a boon. An engaging guide." --James Pfiffner, University Professor of Public Policy, George Mason University, USA

"A superb communicator, Jon Roper has written as good an introduction to American politics as one could wish to find." --Nigel Bowles, Honor Balfour Fellow in Politics and Director of the Rothermere American Institute, University of Oxford, UK

"John Roper has long been one of the most astute foreign observers of the American political scene. This fine book promises a general introduction to its topic, but it delivers much more." --Cal Jillson, Professor of Political Science, Southern Methodist University, USA

"Excellent. Drawing upon his deep knowledge of American politics and history, and written with typical fluency, Roper has produced an eloquent supplement to general texts on American politics." --Chris Bailey, Professor of American Politics, Keele University, UK

"A lively and accessible text offering help to those entering the sometimes bewildering universe of US politics for the first time." --Niall Palmer, Lecturer in American Politics, Brunel University, and Associate Fellow of the Institute for the Study of the Americas, UK

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An informative, fascinating and succinct insight into what makes the United States of America as we know it today tick. It has helped demystify, in layman's terms, what can appear a complex, slow-responding and at times irrational political world which, even in decline, remains an extremely powerful player on the international stage.
