John G Francis, University of Utah
"There′s simply nothing like this text on the market. McKay has been consistently up to date in terms of dealing with the changes in US politics, up to the mark in integrating the best scholarship on US politics and up to the job of meeting both tutor and student demands. Authoritative, accessible and sophisticated, this book has become an integral foundation for teaching US politics"
Paul Taggart, University of Sussex
From the Back Cover
This completely revised new edition takes in the many changes which have occurred in US politics 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.
