I used the challenge of democracy for my political science class and it was very good at describing the political process. It was great because it coincided with the 2016 election. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone taking political science in college and who wants information on the political process.

Also important to your success in the American Government course is keeping abreast of the major events in American and world politics. One way to keep up with such events is to read newspapers on a regular basis. The Globalization of American Government.

This best-selling American government text is highly acclaimed for the non-ideological framework it uses to explore three themes: freedom, order, and equality as political values; the majoritarianism versus pluralism debate; and globalization's effect on American politics. Extensively updated, this edition includes new examples, figures, data, and current discussions. The authors include balanced coverage of the first two years of the Obama administration, coverage and analysis of the 2010 mid-term election, and a retrospective of the Bush presidency. The Eleventh Edition can be packaged with Aplia, which offers students automatically graded homework assignments. Organized by chapter, Aplia helps provides students immediate, detailed explanations and helps them come to class better prepared for discussion.

This textbook is a really good read for two reasons. One, it's unbiased, and the way they make it unbiased is that they question you whether or not a controversial topic should be, or should not be enacted. (They give different view points, and from that you decide on which is the best choice)
Second, it reads like a high school textbook. Some college textbooks get boring and more importantly, complex. This really breaks it down like how high school textbooks do. Therefore, if you have any interest in history or government, (which I assume you do, since this is a Political Science textbook) this book won't be a struggle to read.

The text is fine. The subject is one that I was required to take, but airing my own view; I took this subject back in high school in the 70's and should not have had to retake it now because I've been knowledgable and voting since 1972. Still for those younger people who got nothing out of high school other than themselves, this text teaches them what they should know about the workings of our political system from a modern point of view, looking back to the roots of our nation and how our executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government have developed and evolved.

The good thing about this book is that if you are interested in the US political system(s), this book will give you some structure on how to describe it/them. It talks about many ideas in Political Science including: Federalism, Pluralism, and the conflict between Order, Freedom, and (Social) Equality.

Yep. Social Equality. That is a clue as to how this book, and seemingly the authors themselves, view politics. You can get some Political Science out of this if you can filter out the Political Marketing to understand it. This is a book that dismisses the original government of the US, the Confederation of States in Perpetual Union (aka The Articles of Confederation), as being obstructive to the real purpose of government, the centralist government laid out by the Constitution. The Constitution itself was written by an "...agricultural society huddled along the coast of a wild new land..." (subtext: scared farmers) compared to the massive urban postnuclear society we are now (subtext: the Constitution needs fixing to fit the new us). It describes progressive taxation (income tax) as an improvement because it gave government the tools, i.e. money, to begin serious social reforms (and other things...creating psudeo-legislation where money sets policy without the annoyance of actual legislation scrutinized by all. This is considered normal by the book.). It presents two choices as to why the Supreme Court reversed its opposition stance on FDR's use of the Fed to control States, the first being that they became enlightened to the right way of thinking, or a distant second that FDR's threat to expand the size of the Court and pack with it people that agreed with him needed defusing. They didn't seem to think there was any problem with FDR's threat to undermine the Judicial system but that was probably because it was for a good cause, one to which they approve. And there's more. This is just in the first few chapters.

If you are stuck with this book because you are taking a course then I would recommend that you do some outside reading if you want to be informed. Science, at least classical, non-politicized science, should be more objective and the idea of Thesis/Antithesis/Synthesis is a good model to use when dealing with any topic. This book presents a Thesis with some lip service to Antithesis but actually it mostly goes straight to conclusion bypassing any antithetical arguments, any synthesis of those arguments, and anything else that gets in its way. If you hear an opposing point of view, and they are easy to find, from somewhere else you may still agree with the book but it will be because you have had an opportunity to decide based on a broader understanding and less as an article of faith that this book is presenting a balanced and unbiased view of US Politics.

Good Luck. As far as I know the later editions suffer from the same myopic view so have fun with that too.
