Highlights of thisrevised edition include: a new chapter on the administrative state; a new chapter on women in politics; comprehensive updates throughout to bring readers the latest data, research, and analysis of current events; a newly designed interior and a significantly expanded art program; and more andbetter-integrated ancillaries to enhance both professors' instruction and students' learning.
