Updated in a new 7th edition this book is organized around the evolving nature of the American experiment in democratic government. With a clear and compelling central theme this book provides the theory and basics of American political science as well as the nation's political history.

This book covers the foundations, institutions, and process of American democracy with a clear and relevant approach in an easily readable format. It sharpens the critical thinking skills needed to analyze these evolving relationships through its multitude of new critical thinking questions and timelines.

“As long as people are people, democracy, in the full sense of the word, will always be no more than an ideal. In this sense, you too are merely approaching democracy… but you have one great advantage: you have been approaching democracy uninterruptedly for more than 200 years…” -Vaclav Havel

These moving words — spoken in an address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress by Vaclav Havel, a former dissident Czechoslovakian playwright once imprisoned by that country’s Communist government and later elected its president — aptly capture the theme of Berman and Murphy’s seventh edition. Throughout this latest edition, the authors continue to use America’s approach to a democratic ideal as the conceptual lens through which students can evaluate the performance of our political system, apply their critical thinking skills, and engage political discussion and civic life.
