11 problems such as unemployment in a global economy or the education gap in a knowledge economy even as it must continue to fund Social Security and care for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan? ; What does the American Dream hold for today s college students? ; and Have the rules changed or does it just feel that way to people? The Occupy Wall Street movement caught fire because of this angst and spread quickly across the country thanks to social media.

Have interest groups become so professionalized and elite-driven that they have few ties to their grassroots supporters?

Chapter 11, The Congress, includes a section on how the increased polarization of the members of Congress has led new processes including the frequent threat of the filibuster and the ability of the majority to control the action of each respective house.

Dye, Florida State University, Emeritus ; Harmon Zeigler The question at the center of the sixteenth edition of THE IRONY OF DEMOCRACY is How democratic is American society? While most American government texts address politics from a pluralist perspective, this text approaches the subject by addressing the theme of elitism and contrasting it with democratic theory and modern pluralist theory. As a result, this text helps students understand why the U.S. government works as it does. Fully updated throughout with an analysis of the 2012 presidential campaigns and election results. The Citizens United case and the impact of SuperPACs on the 2010 and 2012 elections are examined. Updated analysis on the divided Congress, the continued large federal deficits, and the recession and stimulus has been included. Coverage of Obama s foreign policies has been expanded to include the role of the United States in the Libyan uprising. Special attention in the 16th edition is given to drone attacks and the war in Afghanistan as the U.S. prepares to draw down its troops. The emergence of the Occupy movements and the growing role of social media in American politics is analyzed. Chapter 6 addresses the rise in partisanship in political parties, the gap between party elites and the membership, and the continuing dealignment of voters. A glossary has been added to help students master important key terms and concepts. In Brief boxes provide students with clear and concise summaries of important arguments and theories throughout the text. Chapter summaries provide An Elitist Interpretation that has been enhanced and emphasized to encourage reflection on and discussion of the chapter s topics.

Smith, University of Nebraska, Lincoln Grounded in current political science research and the latest scholarship, THE PROMISE AND PERFORMANCE OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, 10th Edition, uses the title s theme as an organizing framework, effectively engaging students in American politics. The promise of democracy is analyzed using three core principles: majority rule, political freedom, and political equality. Bond and Smith further explore these principles in features such as Living the Promise and Promise and Policy boxes, the latter of which integrates the policy discussion into the chapter, rather than at the end of the book as many other texts handle policy. The performance of democracy is integrated into the book with an assessment at the end of every chapter, along with a concluding policy chapter. Adopting instructors praise THE PROMISE AND PERFORMANCE OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, 10th Edition for its great command and incorporation of political science literature and research, including a wealth of quality data in well-illustrated tables and figures. Not only the ideal text for reading and learning, it also is a standardsetting example of how political science is researched and written by the practitioners in academia. NEW! New coverage of key political events and issues of the last two years, including assessment of the Obama administration, an in-depth look at the effects of governmental regulation and deregulation, and 2010 election results. NEW! More focused explanations of political science theory throughout the book highlight key foundational concepts in greater, clarified detail and walk students through more examples so they can comfortably apply the models on their own. NEW! This edition incorporates the latest political science literature and research. Nearly half of the text s well-illustrated tables and figures are new and updated. NEW! The BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is covered extensively in Chapter 14: The Bureaucracy, including in a new Promise and Policy box. Soundly based on political science scholarship, THE PROMISE AND PERFORMANCE OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, 10th Edition, includes the normative debates and disagreements within the discipline. Chapter 1, The Promise of Democracy, offers an excellent introduction to the theme, structure, and purpose of the text and is a useful tool for introducing students to the study of American politics. Chapter-opening vignettes and end-of-chapter assessments focused on the performance of the American political system reinforce the book s theme and give students opportunities to analyze and interpret how government and politics work. Living the Promise boxes focus students on individual citizens and the core values of democracy. Examples of young people involved in the democratic process show students how decisions are made and how conflicts are handled in the American political system. Promise and Policy boxes throughout the book -- in addition to a concluding chapter devoted to policy performance -- incorporate policy examples as they relate to the foundations, people and politics, civil 23

The introductory chapter frames the book s theme of the role of government. It asks the big questions such as: Why do we have government? Why is it so big? How much power does it really have? How much power do the people have? 24

27 Fully updated material throughout reflects the 2012 election cycle and the latest issues, information, and scholarship necessary for a current understanding of American government. In addition, an overall streamlining helps clarify key concepts for students in an even more accessible and engaging fashion.

In the Second Edition, an important set of concepts and theories is introduced and then applied to each of nine countries (the United Kingdom, Germany, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, China, India, Nigeria, and Iran) through the Topic in Countries (TIC) sections of each chapter. Students develop an understanding of how economic, cultural, identity, and political structures are linked to political systems and how individuals make political choices. Students are guided in their reading in several ways. Learning Objectives orient the reader to the most important concepts in each chapter. Refined Topic in Countries sections include a new introduction that highlights what to look for as concepts are applied to each country. New Topic In Country (TIC) Wrap Up sections recap the themes that run through the cases covered in that section. A new Country Summary at the end of each TIC section organizes the information just covered in a succinct table. In addition to the nine countries covered in the TIC sections, France, Iraq, and South Africa appear prominently in the book in new Spotlight on boxes. The new design provides a readable presentation of the material and clearly distinguishes the conceptual sections of each chapter from the Topic in Country sections. The Second Edition reflects the most current coverage of political events, which is critical in this area. A new author blog provides timely connections of real-life events to topics covered in the textbook. New Research in Context boxes summarize a recent, important, and relevant comparative politics research article. The summary includes research questions and hypotheses, major theories examined, and the resulting findings. The second part of the exercise focuses on the real-world importance and application of the research. A helpful reference is now featured in the front of the book. New Countries-at-a-Glance include the following information for each of the nine Topic in Countries cases and three Spotlight on countries: a map, basic economic statistics, key cultural themes, identity divisions, regime type, legislatures and executives, unelected components of government, interest groups and social movements, political parties and elections, and leadership. The unique thematic approach of COMPARATIVE POLITICS, 2E, International Edition places chapter 25

28 concepts in context to help students fully understand the material--and succeed in class. Think and Discuss prompts ask students to apply critical-thinking skills to the concepts as they re introduced, while In Theory and Practice (ITAP) boxes delve deeper to inspire students to think critically about and discuss the central topics of each chapter. Each ITAP box provides a brief overview of a key comparative politics theory and then discusses its application to one of the TIC cases. Engaging students from the very beginning, the text features objectives at the beginning of each chapter to reinforce text concepts and ensure student understanding with guided reading. In addition, Did You Know? boxes provide interesting notes and facts that apply to the concepts being covered. PART I: COMPARATIVE POLITICS: THEMES AND APPROACHES. 1.

COMPARATIVE POLITICS takes an in-depth look at ten countries and the European Union, framed within broader discussions in the part-opening chapters on Industrialized Democracies, Current and Former Communist Regimes, and The Global South. The introduction establishes a comparative structure based on five themes: conflict, democratization, economic liberalization, globalization, and challenges, which are then explored for each country. The countries discussed are categorized by economic development, helping students hone their skills of comparison, synthesis, and interpretation by studying countries of similar economic status. With this uniquely effective text, students can gain an understanding of important political trends and concepts, an exposure to politics in a number of countries, and a desire to dig more deeply into the fascinating field of comparative politics. The ninth edition starts with six big questions that cover themes in politics and political science (which are not always the same), including the pace of change, globalization, inequalities, democratization, human security, and the change nature and role of power at the national, international, and subnational levels. More attention to how systems work, especially vicious cycles and virtuous circles, including a 26

29 introductory level overview of complex adaptive system theory. Focus on new themes in comparative politics and other related disciplines such as hybrid regimes, the emergence of the BRICS, approaches to development, and social capital/civil society. Additional coverage of progress in such areas as multilevel governance, the status of women, and overcoming the divisive nature of identity-driven politics. Updates on recent changes including: the most recent elections in the U.S., France, Russia, Iran, and Mexico; breaking issues including the EU s sovereign debt crisis, the leadership and change in China; new social movements including the Tea Party and Occupy movements in the U.S., anti-european organizations, new kinds of NGOs in much of the world, colored revolutions and other new protest movements, and organizations that focus on identity issues. Critical thinking questions appear in the opening chapter that students can use as a toolkit to examine each country they encounter. These universal questions will help students compare, synthesize, and interpret material from the text, supporting a more thorough understanding of key concepts. The text covers ten countries and the European Union in extensive detail. The chapters are organized based on economic development: industrialized democracies, current and former communist regimes, and less developed countries in the Global South. Boxed features in each chapter make insightful comparative analysis easy by highlighting the nature of conflict, democratization, challenges, economic liberalization, and globalization.

The author uses an arenas classification to organize and frame the systematic comparative analysis, rather than the traditional three worlds framework. This classification reflects the contemporary political, economic, and social realities of different political systems, allowing the author to provide historical, theoretical, and conceptual background through nine, in-text country case studies (with additional online chapters available). Unlike most other texts, McCormick focuses intently on the non- Western world and explores the political influence of Islam and Iran. The Seventh Edition of COMPARATIVE POLITICS IN TRANSITION, 7E, International Edition is streamlined and shorter than the previous edition but maintains its global focus and comprehensive coverage. There has been some restructuring to present information more clearly, and the arguments and approaches have been fine-tuned. The method and science behind the study of Comparative Politics introduced in Chapter 1 has been strengthened and expanded, giving students a deeper understanding of the field and the necessary tools to analyze countries beyond the book. 27

30 New! Chapter 2, The Story of States, looks at the formation and evolution of states, at the competing pressures on their development, at their impact on government and economic development, and at the debate about where they are headed. The new boxed feature, Comparison in Action, appears throughout the book and places each case study in context on a particular issue, complementing the Comparative Exercises that come at the end of every case study. Extended coverage and analysis of the fallout from the global financial crisis and emerging states, such as China and Brazil, who are becoming more prominent global actors. Revised cases reflect political and economic turbulence and include coverage of: the United States, the remarkable shift to coalition government in Britain, ongoing struggles to change the character of politics in Japan, more evidence of the growing global reach of China and India, new signs of authoritarianism in Russia, a debilitating drug war in Mexico, ethnic and religious tensions in Nigeria, continuing political tensions in Iran and its neighborhood, and the near collapse of organized society in Haiti. A new 2-color design provides an opportunity to present information more visually. Completely updated to reflect current events and political changes, COMPARATIVE POLITICS IN TRANSITION, 7E, International Edition includes the latest election results and changes in leadership. COMPARATIVE POLITICS IN TRANSITION, 7E, International Edition is uniquely organized into six groups of states, or arenas: liberal democracies, communist and post-communist states, new democracies, less-developed states, Islamic states, and marginal states. A chapter on Iran represents the Islamic Countries section and serves as a strong example of the ideological and cultural struggle between Islam and the West, grabbing students interest as it relates to current events. 1.

Theory in Action. World politics is the result of real people making decisions and choices, and it s important for students to see how ideas shape our decisions and actions. These features demonstrate how ideas are directly translated into policy and action, and each ends with a set of critical-thinking questions. For students, these can take the mystery out of why they are expected to learn the underlying theories of international politics. The Revenge of Geography. As globalization has caused national boundaries to mean less and less, the physical realities of geography retain their importance. These features incorporate maps, mapping exercises, and discussion questions alongside a case demonstrating how geography can influence international relations. The Role of the U.S. IR uses a balance of global examples throughout. With this feature, U.S. students are given a specific look into how their country figures into the topic at hand and how their lives connect to the material. Such an emphasis keeps the content relevant to students and helps maintain their interest in the subject matter. Each ends with a critical-thinking question. Part I: THEORY AND PRACTICE. 1.

Stoessinger, University of San Diego WHY NATIONS GO TO WAR, International Edition is unique. The reflections of author John G. Stoessinger are built around ten case studies and provide a deep analysis of the root causes of modern war, from from World War I to the modern day. The author s main emphasis is on the pivotal role of the personalities of leaders who take their nations, or their following, across the threshold into war. Students are sure to remember Stoessinger s thoughts on war long after their completion of his book. The new 11th edition is completely updated, including references to the recent elections in Afghanistan. A new section on the situation in Iran has been added: The Iranian People s Uprising appears as a subheading under the chapter New Wars for a New Century. The main insight of this book still holds true: He who starts a war loses in the end. The major research finding of the author is that no nation that began a war in the twentieth century ever emerged as a winner. Those that start a war and expect a quick victory fight on for years, and then go down in the end. This truth seems to hold up for the war in Iraq, as well. 48

51 Ten brief chapters reflecting the ten major conflicts from 1914 to the present contain dramatic episodes that illuminate how individual leaders, rather than abstract forces, such as militarism, nationalism, or alliance systems, tend to precipitate a war. Each episode contains examples from living history that illustrate for readers how leaders misperceptions about the character, intentions, or power of the oppositions leaders precipitate wars. In short, the human factor is emphasized in order to engage a reader s empathy and to demonstrate that history can be an exciting enterprise. The Epilogue, which traces the author s escape from the Nazi Holocaust via Siberia and China to the United States, is timelier today than ever. At the close of each chapter, updated bibliographies and maps direct the reader to useful works on war, as well as visual references on geographic and ethnic elements in each area of study. Preface.

This text is notable for its early coverage of methods and theory and the use of a case study approach introduced and used to acquire in-depth information about a particular subject while also pointing to its limitations. While the text covers fundamental concepts with contemporary, political examples, discussions of feminism and environmentalism offer a distinct departure from other texts and a unique opportunity to professors and students of political science. The Sixth Edition incorporates a new theme: It introduces the reader to some ways in which political science evaluates and seeks to unravel some of the complexities of 21st century politics. Because politics is rarely straightforward, students of political science need to be prepared for surprises, surprises so multilayered that they can be conceptualized as puzzles or riddles. The new edition confronts these complexities directly and brings them into every chapter of the book. The new theme-how political science can be used to unravel complexities of 21st century politics is carried out pedagogically in each chapter, serving as an explicit intellectual framework. Each chapter now begins with a contemporary puzzle 51

54 and photo that relates to the chapter s topic and poses questions that will be examined throughout the chapter. These included puzzles are: the discrepancy between what people have the potential to know regarding political issues and what they do, in fact, know (Chapter 1); Senator Marco Rubio s 2012 response to a question about the earth s age (Chapter 2); Project Prevention, a controversial California organization that pays people to get sterilized (Chapter 3); the use of drones (Chapter 4); the disagreement surrounding President Obama s ideological identity (Chapter 5); Chancellor Merkel s statement about Germany s special and perpetual obligation to make ever present knowledge of the Holocaust while taking measures to ensure the absence of Nazism itself (Chapter 6); climate displacement and its gender dimensions (Chapter 7); competing voices of the Arab Spring (Chapter 8) and the Republican Party s Growth and Opportunity Project about how they can win in 2016 (Chapter 9). Puzzle icons appear in the margin within the chapter to identify concepts or details that are especially relevant to the puzzle as well as key evidence to use in analyzing within the larger context of the chapter s themes. Analyzing the Puzzle of sections at the end of each chapter address the questions posed at the start. New Controversies in boxes draw attention to high-interest, current issues for students. Examples include Controversies in Science which discusses DNA testing procedures in newborns (Chapter 2), and Controversies in States and Power: Is the U.S. Playing Terrorball? (Chapter 3). Updated research and current information throughout including: -New research on quantitative analysis, strengths and limitations of different research strategies, including a discussion from Nate Silver on the Primary Model and the TimeforChangeModel (Chapter 2) -Incorporation of targeted killings by the U.S.; new coverage of nongovernmental organizations and Transnational Advocacy Networks (Chapter 3) -new content on mitigation policy and adaptation in the discussion of environmentalism (Chapter 7) -expanded discussion of direct lobbying, and new research and info on interest groups ; completely updated coverage of PACs; expanded discussion of protest using examples like the 2013 National Day of Protest and Occupy Wall Street; updated statistics on Support for Presidential Candidates across Various Subgroups; and a thoughtful analysis of the 2012 presidential election and the Romney and Obama campaigns (Chapter 9). A new design offers a more open and readable page with brighter photographs. All boxes throughout the book are organized into Concept Summary and Concept in Depth categories to enhance the book s pedagogical orientation. Instructors and students can use the Concept Summary boxes for reference and review, and move on to the Concept in Depth boxes for further study. The text features integrated coverage of other cultures.

This feature is designed to provide students with a concrete, real-life example of a given topic or idea, aiding them in their understanding of scientific thinking and research. A new Appendix A provides an introduction to a discussion of America s declining social capital in order to illustrate how scholars have approached the changing relationship of community involvement and political participation. Appendix B explores the causes and consequences of trust in government in order to illustrate how observations of correlation are used to assess explanations of causality. Based on the backgrounds of the authors, a theorist and a behavioral analyst, the text bridges the gap between the anti-positivist and positivist approaches to research, focusing on various forms of epistemology and methodology. Offers a basic, cross-disciplinary guide to research methods. The text assumes no statistical background and uses anecdotal language, cartoons, and contemporary examples to introduce students to scientific thinking. Demystifies the social scientific method by stressing the roles of curiosity, creativity, and imagination in social scientific problem solving. Organized into self-contained, progressively more specialized chapters that may be read chronologically by beginning students or selectively by researchers. Uses updated examples and new discussions and provides a fresh look at the elements of social science. 1. Thinking Scientifically. 2. The Elements of Science. 3. Strategies. 4. Refinements. 5.

This idea has inspired each edition of UNDERSTANDING POLITICS: IDEAS, INSTITUTIONS, AND ISSUES. Thomas Magstadt s book provides in-depth coverage of contemporary political issues and calls attention to the more enduring underlying questions. With its intense and engaging politics are pertinent theme and its current, cutting-edge coverage, the Eleventh Edition fascinates students with its coverage of three fundamental premises: 1) politics is a pervasive force in modern society; 2) government is too critically important to be left in the hands of a few; and 3) everyone has both the opportunity and the obligation to participate in public life in a democracy. The Eleventh Edition of UNDERSTANDING POLITICS focuses on such vital concepts as democracy, dictatorship, citizenship, voting behavior, elections, leadership, ideologies, war, revolution, world politics, and public policy. UNDERSTANDING POLITICS, Eleventh Edition, has been thoroughly revised and updated throughout to reflect the ever-changing global political landscape in a streamlined, yet comprehensive presentation. New examples and updates throughout include: Super PAC spending on elections in Chapter 11 (including updated statistics), medical marijuana, domestic terrorism, and gun legislation in Chapter 13, the changing political powers in China in Chapter 5, the evolving political landscape in the Euro-community in Chapter 7, and coverage of Aung San Suu Kyi and her movement in Chapter 12.

Coverage of the Texas legislature has been streamlined from two chapters in the previous edition (Chapters 6 and 7) to one (Chapter 6, The Legislature ), allowing for more efficient delivery of this critical coverage. The new chapter emphasizes the following: the absolute majority held by Republicans in the Eighty-second Legislature and their internal struggles between Tea Party and orthodox members; efforts to end the two-thirds rule in the Senate; the wrangling over issues such as redistricting and social programs; and the ultimate accomplishments, or lack thereof, in the 98

A new box in each chapter, titled Lone Star Media, discusses the role of media and media consumption in Texas politics. For example, The Missing Ingredient (Chapter 1) stresses the importance of the quality of the citizens who consume the news that the media supply; Rights versus Rights (Chapter 2) discusses how the right of freedom of the press is tested; How Do I Tell Thee? (Chapter 5) talks about Politifact, an effort to evaluate the truthfulness of politicians; and To Tell the Truth--Or Not (Chapter 11) considers the means of emergency communication. Several new editorial cartoons from Pulitzer Prize winner Ben Sargent, recently retired from a 35-year career at the Austin American-Statesman, that call out the bumblings of Texas politics both entertain and challenge students.
