Book Description

This brand-new edition of the best-selling eTextbook The Logic of American Politics 8th edition has been completely updated and now includes coverage of the remarkable election results of 2016, including the fact that Donald Trump was elected as president, along with an extensive analysis of those results. It provides students with a modified introduction to an institutional style that makes concepts such as command, veto, agenda control, voting guidelines, and delegation much more comfortable for college students to master and use; as a result, they gain a clear understanding of how the American political system was designed and why it functions the way that it does. Authors Samuel Kernell, Thad Kousser, Gary C. Jacobson, and Lynn Vavreck strengthen the critical thinking skills of college students by teaching them an idea that is simple yet powerful: politics is about finding solutions to problems involving collective action.

This new edition continues the investigation of partisan distinctions among citizens and in government, and also draws attention to the increasingly partisan nature of programs. This ebook highlights how the institutional structures of the federal government, federalism, as well as campaigns, can help voters make sense of the options available to them by examining issues such as the troubled implementation of the Affordable Care Act; the increasing legalization of cannabis and same-sex marriage in the states; and the dispute over migration. Specifically, these issues are covered. Concerns such as global environmental change, healthcare reform, and the federal spending plan are examined in the last chapter of this section on the formulation of policy. This chapter takes a look at the apparent logic that leads American policy. College students gain an understanding of the factors that contribute to the existence of policy problems, become aware of the services that may be provided, and comprehend the reasons why reaching an agreement on those answers is frequently so challenging.
