American Government puts students directly in touch with the great authors and political leaders who have shaped – and are shaping – American government. This reader provides a blend of classic readings and cases that illustrate and amplify important concepts in American government, along with extremely current readings and cases drawn from today’s issues and literature.
Affectionately dubbed the “woolly reader” by my classmates and I, American Government: Readings and Cases was required reading for my AP American Government class this past semester. While it was nice having a compilation of essays for reference when one essay referred to another, Woll’s comments at the end of each essay didn’t add much to my understanding of the essays included in this collection.
