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 standard-setting example of how political science is researched and written by the practitioners in academia.
