The top-selling and widely recommended Essentials of American Government: Roots and Reform, 2011 Edition (10th Edition) ISBN 9780205825769 has been updated to include the most recent political developments that shape the US government. Authors Karen J. O'Connor, Larry J. Sabato, and Alixandra B. Yanus discusses traditional concepts of governments but focuses on the current issues affecting the economy, plus a review of President Barack Obama's performance. The authors divided the book into 3 main parts: (1) the foundation of government, (2) institutions of government, and (3) political behavior. Some of the topics under each category include the political landscape, the constitution, federalism, civil liberties, and civil rights. O'Connor, Sabato, and Yanus likewise provide information on how the congress, the presidency, the executive branch, the federal bureaucracy, and the judiciary system works. The book aims to make students aware of the different political parties and interest groups, campaigns, elections, and voting, domestic and economic policy, and the foreign and defense policies influencing the nation. The illustrated historical timelines have likewise been updated to reflect current episodes. The ‘Join the Debate' boxes encourage intellectual classroom discussion and critical thinking. Essentials of American Government: Roots and Reform, 2011 Edition (10th Edition) even covers issues such as health care and the war in Iraq. Unlike other textbooks on government and history, this engaging reference is hard to put down. It will be enjoyed by political science majors as well as those interested in sociology and law, and can be used with the online supplement.
