Description: Understanding American Politics provides an excellent introduction to the contemporary political landscape in the United States. Using the idea of "American exceptionalism" as its core organizing feature, this text offers an original and highly useful approach to understanding American government and politics.The second edition provides a very strong introduction to political institutions and includes a new chapter on public opinion. The entire book has been revised throughout, taking into account the dramatic changes that have emerged since the 2010 congressional elections, as well as incorporating the results of the 2012 presidential election. it also pays close attention to what is seen as the irreversible decline in America's global influence.
