Crisis in American Institutions provides students with an array of engaging articles that reflect America's social problems and encourage critical thought.

This edition contains seventeen new articles, many addressing the escalating crises of American society in recent years, including the worst economic crisis in decades, the rapid rise in health care costs, the polarizing debate on immigration, and the continuing growth of economic inequality. Others update our coverage of longstanding issues, including the persistence of poverty, the continued growth of mass incarceration, and the politics of global warming.

"As someone who generally eschews traditional textbooks in favor of readers, I have always found Crisis in American Institutions particularly good at choosing accessible, interesting, and cogent readings. It is especially good at mixing academic pieces with journalistic articles and it is also a very well edited book, especially when it comes to excerpting readings from books"
Evan Cooper, Farmingdale State College

"I find the book to be very thorough."
Kyle Ann Nelson, University of Maryland
