A "substantive" alternative to typical "issues" texts--which cover too many issues, too superficially--this intriguing and comprehensive text offers a more "in-depth" and "coherent" approach to contemporary policy problems and solutions. It provides a conceptual framework in which students can become comfortable actually "doing" policy analysis, and in learning skills "beyond" reading about certain political issues. Thematically organized, it looks at nine specific issues grouped into three broad categories that hold an enduring importance in American political life--money and politics, violence and politics, and biology and politics. All nine chapters and their respective topics (campaigns, corruption, welfare, crime, terrorism, arms control, the environment, biomedical issues, and biotechnology) have a strong conceptual base with current political dimensions and policy concerns woven throughout. Students not only learn the context, status, and prospects of issues confronting the U.S. government, but also see how these issues now cross our domestic borders into a global realm.
