American Government (Package): With in Defense of Politicians (Paperback)Cal Jillson (author)
Paperback Published: 10/04/2013
- Not available
This is a bundled package of American Government, 7th edition, and In Defense of Politicians. Cal Jillson's American Government: Political Development and Institutional Change shows students how the nation's past is present in all aspects of contemporary politics, using the dynamics of change as a tool to understand how politics works and how institutions, systems, avenues of participation, and policies have evolved over time to produce today's political environment in the United States. Drawing on seminal work in political science, In Defense of Politicians convincingly argues to the masses that blanket condemnation of politicians is both unfair and unwarranted. Stephen K. Medvic explains how cognitive biases in the way people reason often lead us to draw unjustified conclusions of politicians in general based on the malfeasance of some. He also demonstrates the necessity of ambition, the utility of politics for resolving conflicts peacefully, and the value of ideology in framing political choices.
