The alternate edition of this classic text features the exact same coverage as the comprehensive version but without the policy chapters. This bestselling book has been extensively revised to provide in-depth coverage of the 2008 presidential and congressional elections, President George W. Bushrsquo;s second administration and the 110 th Congress, continued controversies related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the war on terrorism, and domestic concerns related to rising gas and food prices and the subprime mortgage crisis.
