O’Connor, American Government: Roots and Reform 11th Edition AP® Edition
 
 

Historical Perspective

Students cannot fully understand the actions, issues, and policy decisions facing the U.S. government, its constituent states, or “the people” unless these issues are examined from the perspective of how they have evolved over time. American Government, AP® Edition examines how the United States is governed today by looking not just at present structures and behavior but also at the Framers’ intentions and how they have been implemented and adapted over the years.

 

To understand all levels of American government, students must appreciate its constitutional underpinnings. This text includes a full, annotated Constitution of the United States and a boxed feature, “The Living Constitution,” to ensure that AP® students understand and appreciate the role of the Constitution in American government and their everyday lives.

 

Relevant, Up-to-date

This text has been extensively revised to provide in-depth coverage of President Barack Obama’s first two years in office and the 111th Congress, the 2010 congressional elections, continued concerns related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and domestic concerns related to health care reform and the economy.
