Show synopsis 'An invaluable collection of essays for all students of American politics providing...a comprehensive assessment of government, politics and policy under Clinton...highly recommended as an excellent text.' - Mary Lloyd, Talking Politics '...an extremely well written and erudite book which fascinates as well as instructs. If anything, the author is too modest in his claims. We can all, teacher and student alike, benefit from a study of its pages...[It] comes pretty close to being an objective and comparative study in which one can instinctively trust the integrity of the author and the breadth of his knowledge.' - C.P. Thomas, Talking Politics Fully revised and updated for its new fifth edition, Modern Politics and Government is one of the most popular and successful introductory text books available. The book provides an introduction to political concepts, institutions, processes and behaviour, drawing on examples from a wide range of countries. Designed for degree students in politics and other social sciences it is ideally suited to the needs of students taking modular courses in higher and further education.
