Following in the footsteps of the highly successful Queer: A Graphic History, illustrator Jules Scheele teams up with Dr Laura Locker in this comic-book introduction to the political history of the Land of Opportunity.

How did
a political outsider like Trump win the 2016 presidential election? Why do some
Americans feel so strongly about gun rights? Is there a role for more than two
political parties in the system?

Politics
isn't something that just occurs in the West Wing or the gleaming Capitol
building - it comes from the interaction between state and society, the
American people living their daily lives. In this unique graphic guide, we
follow modern citizens as they explore everything from the United States'
political culture, the Constitution and the balance of power, to social
movements, the role of the media, and tensions over race, immigration, and LGBT
rights.

Step
right up, and see what lies beneath the pageantry and headlines of this great
nation.

“A very broad but shallow account of American politics”

American Politics: A Graphic Guide is a small book that manages to fit in a lot of different topics. I definitely learned a lot from it, however the information was presented in a dry tone that didn't make the... More
