This text takes a new approach to teaching introductory American government and politics. Beginning with the premise that the American political system belongs to the American people, it presents the workings of that system in the format of an "owner's manual." Using a "systems approach," Melusky provides students with a conceptual map of the large and complex American political system. Coverage includes its foundation, structure, and parts; the role of the Constitution, parties, voting, congress, the presidency, public policy, state and local government, and interest groups; the relationship among its parts; the relation of the entire system to the systems of other countries; the relation of the entire system to the economic and social systems, and more. Now packaged with PowerWeb, a dynamic course-specific rather than book-specific supplement that engages your students in three levels of resource materials and provides a true avenue to extending learning about a subject, The American Political System is a necessity in any American Government course.
