Cengage Advantage Books: American Government and Politics Today, Brief Edition, 2010-2011 is one of the best textbooks in this niche. Authors Steffen W. Schmidt, Mack C. Shelley, and Barbara A. Bardes successfully put together a well-balanced reference offering concise and important information on the American government while encouraging students to become active citizens. Cengage Advantage Books: American Government and Politics Today, Brief Edition, 2010-2011(ISBN 9780495797135) discusses the democratic republic, the constitution, federalism, civil liberties, civil rights, and public opinion, political socialization, and the media. The authors also focus on interest groups and political parties, campaigns, elections, and voting behavior, the congress, presidency, bureaucracy, and judiciary. The practical appendix section contains a copy of the declaration of independence, the constitution, and the federalist papers. Suitable for introductory level political science courses, this material is often praised for straightforward writing. It allows students to use their critical thinking via its ‘At Issue' and ‘Making a Difference' feature boxes as well as its ‘For Critical Analysis', ‘What You Can DO' and ‘Why You Should Care' questions. Already on its 6th edition, it has been updated with a new design and offers up to date coverage on current topics like the banking crisis and the Obama administration. Helpful online resources are also provided at the end of each chapter for extended information. All authors are professors of political science; Steffen W. Schmidt and Mack C. Shelley teach in Iowa State University, and Barbara A. Bardes teaches in the University of Cincinnati. They all have extensive backgrounds in writing for government and political books, journals, and magazines.
