About This Product

This edition of THE CHALLENGE OF DEMOCRACY: AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IN GLOBAL POLITICS, THE ESSENTIALS introduces new co-author Deborah Schildkraut to this stellar author team. This best-selling American government text is highly acclaimed for the non-ideological framework it uses to explore three themes: freedom, order, and equality as political values; the majoritarianism versus pluralism debate; and globalization's effect on American politics. Extensively updated, this condensed edition includes new examples, figures, data, and current discussions. The authors include balanced coverage of Obama's historical presidency and coverage and analysis of the 2012 presidential primary campaign and election. Using a systematic, easy to follow approach, chapters and subheadings are numbered and organized by learning outcomes. Students can test their knowledge of learning outcomes using end of chapter "Assessing Your Understanding" questions, and then further reinforce learning with the critical-thinking questions with Aplia. Organized by chapter, Aplia provides students immediate, detailed explanations and helps them come to class better prepared for discussion with assignments that are automatically graded. NEW PREMIUM CONTENT IN MindTap FOR JANUARY 2014: DATA INFOGRAPHICS! Explore current American Government topics in a visually-stimulating way with these beautifully designed, up to date pdfs that simplify new analytical data such as the 2013 government shutdown and the ever-increasing powers of the American president. These NEW Data Infographics are automatically added to this book's MindTap learning path.
