Overview

Updated in a new 11th edition, Government in America: People, Politics, and Policy, illustrates the impact that government has on the daily lives of each and every American, particularly its effect on students. Designed around the theme that “politics matters,” this descriptive text emphasizes public policy — what government actually does. It contains recent political developments and policy on the global economic recession and addresses President Barack Obama’s impact on our current government.

The brief edition is a streamlined version of this bestseller.
