Debating American Government, Brief Edition

Fourth Edition

James A. 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
  • Analysis of the 2018 midterm elections
  • Assessment of major party changes and the policies of the Trump administration
