Now featuring the logic of policymaking!
Praised for its engaging narrative, The Logic of American Politics hooks students with great storytelling while giving them a taste of real political science. Students come to understand why institutional design concepts like voting rules and delegation help explain why the American political system works the way it does. The authors build students critical thinking skills through a simple yet powerful idea: politics is about solving collective action problems.
The Seventh Edition continues to delve into partisan differences among voters and in government, exploring issues such as the Affordable Care Acts troubled implementation, the increasing legalization of marijuana and same-sex marriage in the states, and the debate over President Obamas executive action on immigration. A new concluding chapter on policymaking examines the noticeable logic that guides American policy, as shown through policies like health care reform, global climate change, and the federal budget.
