Description
In this anthology, gathering works on political science that have stood the test of time and also contemporary analyses, political science professor Richard Valelly acquaints readers with the substantive, conceptual, and methodological foundations they need to make sense of American politics today. These writings, by such scholars as Larry M. Bartels, Robert Dahl, Martha Derthick, Howard Gillman, Jacob Hacker, Kay L. Schlozman, Deborah Stone, Marta Tienda, and Kent Weaver, discuss the major American political institutions—the presidency, Congress, the courts—as well as political parties, macroeconomic management, voting and elections, policymaking, public opinion, and federalism.

"Typically, introductory textbooks leave students adrift in a sea of facts and colorful graphics. Valelly has higher ambitions: he wants to help students think rigorously and deeply about American politics. This volume, based on the work of prominent social scientists, will give readers the ability, and desire, to learn more."—Christopher Howard
