"This book brings together political science that has stood the test of time and recent cutting-edge analyses to acquaint students with what they need to make sense of American politics today."--Times Higher Education "An extremely useful American Politics 101 (or maybe more like 201) that in a decent world would be read by the large number of political junkies and political professionals who don't have much exposure to the formal study of US politics."--Matthew Yglesias, Yglesias blog "An excellent resource for journalists and others who are interested in a one-stop 'Everything You Want to Know About Americanist Political Science but Were Afraid to Ask' collection... Recommended."--Henry Farrell, Monkey Cage
