This volume addresses all of the major topics of an American government course, such as elections, Congress, and public policy. It looks at government and politics in this country as a series of conflicts that have led to compromises. Each chapter includes a discussion of a significant political issue and presents both sides of that issue, exploring how Americans truly are "at odds" with each other politically. And, wired for today's student, the book incorporates the Internet and other multimedia extensively into the text and ancillary package.
