We the People: An Introduction to American Politics is a concise and authoritative reference providing a thorough discussion of the fundamental and core topics that concern American politics. It retains the highly effective pedagogical design patterned on the full edition and has been updated with chapter introductions that offer discussions on why the topics and concepts discussed matter. There are also help boxes that highlight important concepts, making learning easier. Authors Benjamin Ginsberg, Theodore Lowi, and Margaret Weir also show the rise in political participation, particularly among the young generation in the last decade, and how this influences political changes. The book also comes with a complete ancillary package that features different tools to aid in learning. It discusses the political culture of America, as well as constitutional democracy, and how it is important in promoting liberty. Federalism, civil liberties, individual rights, and equal rights are also discussed, along with other important political topics like public opinion and political socialization. There are also topics on political participation as well as voting, along with political parties and other electoral elements like campaigns and the candidates. The book discusses the influence of interest groups, as well as how the media communicates political images. There is a chapter dedicated to the congress, and how it balances local interests and national goals. The last sections are all about the presidency, federal bureaucracy, and the judicial system. The authors also roped in some interesting insights on economic and environmental policies, welfare and education, as well as foreign and defense policies. Ginsberg, Lowi, and Weir are prominent professors in various universities across the country. Lowi is known for his works including the Pursuit of Justice and The End of Liberalism, while Weir has co-authored several books like Schooling for All: Class, Race, and the Decline of the Democratic Ideal. Ginsberg is best known for his titles, Politics by Other Means and The Captive Public.
