American Politics and Society,
This review is from: American Politics and Society (Paperback)
'American politics and Society' is a good first port of call for those who wish to learn about how the various agencies/branches of American politics are formed and run. It is written as a standard text book, but this doesn't detract from the readability of the text. This is a great introduction to American Politics. I bought my copy when doing my A-levels and I still refer back to it now to clarify points, or just to dip into out of general interest. His style is easy to read and his explanations are clear. It covers all the major topics you would wish to look at in your studies, has extensive charts, tables and graphs and is a great references book for anyone interested in politics. Well worth a look. Also check out 'Development is American Politics' edited by Gillian Peele, which also has some excellent information in a selection of essays form.
