This book uniquely addresses the concepts of this course through the following perspectives. Historical Perspective-A look at how course concepts relate events in the past to current events. Through such a view, students gain an understanding that the political process is sound, has worked for years and will work for years to come. Popular Perspective- Students who are provided a way to take the political winds of change associated with popular opinion are able to understand why certain events transpired the way they did and gain a deeper appreciation for the nuances of the American political system. The Political Perspective provides them with such an experience. Global Perspective- Not to be confused with a comparative analysis, the Global perspectives allow an instructor to demonstrate how the US political system is viewed by the media, political elites and the public in other parts of the world.
