M.J.C. Vile’s classic introductory text, Politics in the USA, has now been thoroughly revised and updated to take account of the considerable developments in American politics over the last ten years.

The book provides students with an essential background to the history and development of the American political system as well as an explanation of its key structures, processes and institutions. The book establishes a framework within which to understand the intricacies of politics in the world’s most powerful nation.

This new edition provides students with:

  • The discussion of controversial issues such as abortion, immigration, the death penalty, Hurricane Katrina, and Guantánamo Bay and civil rights;

This is the most up-to-date and readable textbook on American politics. As such, it will be of interest to all students of politics and international relations.
