Key Features:
  • This text arms students with a "toolkit" of institutional design concepts—command, veto, agenda control, voting rules, and delegation—that help them comprehend how the American political system was designed and why it works the way it does.
  • A set of robust pedagogical features strengthens the book’s analytic approach:
    • Chapter-opening vignettes draw students in while effectively pointing to a chapter’s main themes.
    • Logic of Politics boxes examine the design of various political institutions considering the objectives they were intended to achieve.
    • Strategy and Choice boxes show how officeholders, and those seeking to influence them, employ institutions to advance their goals.
    • Politics to Policy boxes highlight how public policies reflect the institutions that produce them and evaluate institutional capacity to solve the nation’s problems.

  • The concluding chapter on policymaking examines the noticeable logic that guides American policy. Students glean insights into the sources of policy problems, identify possible solutions, and realize why agreement on those solutions is often so hard to achieve.
  • Students are exposed to real political science in the introductory course as the authors weave in the latest research, including tables and figures to provide students with the opportunity to analyze data.
