Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's not the most amazing textbook ever written, but it is easy to understand, well-written, not overly wordy, and fits its usage. I read it for a political science course, and I would not purchase it other than for that purpose, but it was an interesting book, as far as textbooks go, if you're interested in political science in the first place. I think you can breeze through it pretty easily if you possess college-level reading capabilities of any variety. Buy it on Amazon; it's a heck of a lot cheaper here than anywhere else.

This book is a concise, informative, and interesting read. I had to buy this book for my Political Parties, Voters, and Elections class and it was a good resource. I would recommend for anyone studying political parties, voters, and elections in the US.
