Summary

Updated in a new 14th edition,The Basics of American Politicscovers all the terms and topics a reader will need to understand the nuts-and-bolts of American government and politics. Written to engage readers, and kept short to provide a flexible foundation, this book uses a dynamic game metaphor to engage readers in the basics of the American political system and the contact sport of politics. Beginning with a clear definition of politics, it introduces four governmental and four nongovernmental "players" who must abide by the "rules of the game" established by the Constitution and civil liberties. It ends by examining rival theories of who wins and who loses in American politics.
