Debating American Government, Brief Edition

Third Edition

James Morone and Rogan Kersh

  • Condenses the content of the comprehensive edition while also preserving its essential insights, organization, and approach
  • Approximately 20% shorter and less expensive than its parent text, the full-color Brief Edition features a more streamlined narrative
  • Enhanced by the same extensive support package as the longer edition
  • "ENGAGE," "THINK," and "DEBATE" features help frame the unique aspects of American government and encourages students to use their critical thinking skills

New to this Edition:

  • An analysis of the recent seismic events that have shaken up our institutions, ideas, and interests alongside new and updated statistics and figures in each chapter to track slower moving, but influential trends
  • An analysis of the raucous 2016 primary and general election season
  • An exploration of the Black Lives Matter movement that reached into campuses where students engaged in an active questioning of First Amendment rights
  • An assessment of the Tea Party's breaching of the Republican Party and changes within both parties
