"American Politics and Society gets better with each edition. The breadth of its coverage and the depth of its analysis make it an unsurpassed introduction to the U.S. political system. This new version brings the text and the statistical data right up to date and provides the essential context to understanding the current crisis of American government and its political institutions." ("Expofairs," 12 May 2014)

Review

"American Politics and Society gets better with each edition. The breadth of its coverage and the depth of its analysis make it an unsurpassed introduction to the U.S. political system. This new version brings the text and the statistical data right up to date and provides the essential context to understanding the current crisis of American government and its political institutions."―John Hart, Australia National University

“Combining beautifully clear information with magisterially lucid analysis, David McKay’s survey of American Politics and Society has been a model textbook for 30 years. This new edition has been comprehensively updated and rewritten to take account of the leading developments of recent years. The balance between continuity and change is here admirably depicted and reviewed, renewing our fascination with the patterns and surprises of US civic and political life.”―James Dunkerley, Queen Mary, University of London 

“David McKay’s essential text continues to serve as the building block upon which the current generation of scholars and students can learn about the political system of the United States. McKay’s work has always been lucid, concise and informative; but now with even more graphs, data and briefing sections, the latest edition is twice as expansive, informed and intricate. A triumph of detail and deliberation, McKay’s book reaffirms its central role in the teaching of American politics. An indispensible read.”― Ian Scott, University of Manchester

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Easy to read and understand, lots of extra boxes eg. "Controversy" 1, 2, 3... and "Briefing" which highlight certain issues from the main body of the text which is usefully sectioned into chapters, headings and further subheadings. Questions and further references at the end of each chapter, as well as a glossary for each, makes learning and further research easy
