As an up-to-the-minute examination of the American condition, Contemporary United States is hard to beat, making sense of a nation that appears more fractious than ever. In an impressively concise analysis, it tells the fascinating and important story of an America in which, despite its contradictions and conundrums, continuity - even in the age of Trump - still manages to be an abiding watchword. * Ian Scott, University of Manchester, UK * Already an impressive textbook, the fully revised Contemporary United States is an indispensable resource for teachers. Including coverage of the shocking 2016 election, this new edition does not mince words. * Steen Christiansen, Aalborg University, Denmark *
