Editorial Reviews

Review

"[The Logic of American Politics] is simply the best American government text out there. Its clear focus on collective action theory is appealing and understandable, and the text is readable and engaging." -- Suzanne R. Robbins "Most other textbooks for the introductory American politics course leave out either the politics or the science. The Logic of American Politics is unique in providing a thorough, current introduction to the system while also giving students a way to think critically and systematically about it. Despite the fact that it is new and abstract at the outset, students seize on the book's collective action and institutional design framework and use it in class. This is an indication to me that the book pays off for them." -- Scott Meinke "The Logic of American Politics has a clear analytical focus, smart and thoughtful chapters that cover what I like in an intro. text, and a writing style that is engaging and accessible to students." -- Charles R. Shipan

If you're going to digitize a book and give it a GARBAGE chapter menu and no real page number reference, you get a single star

anyone buying kindle books online and the same lazy chapter and page referencing is in place I suggest you do the same.
