This text provides a wide range of readings that critically assess important topics in contemporary American democracy. The introductions to each section provide wonderful explanations of the importance of the topic for American democracy and a clear context for students to understand the major debates in that topic area. This text is certainly superior to the Annual Editions in terms of organization and original content, and it provides a nice supplement for most
introductory American government texts."
-Professor James B Cottril, St. Cloud State University
[Current Debates in American Government] could be ideal in an advanced upperdivision class, or for that matter even in a graduate seminar where the educational process is one of class discussion and analysis of views regarding a political issue."
-Dr. William E. Kelly, Auburn University
A highly readable selection of stimulating articles that can be readily folded into most American Politics courses."
