Book Title: American Government: Power and Purpose (Brief Thirteenth Edition, 2014 Election Update)
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
Author: Theodore J. Lowi
A brief text that gets students thinking analytically.
Based on the Full Edition of American Government: Power and Purpose but with a simpler framework, the Brief 13th Edition includes new content on how race, gender, and group identity intersect with political behavior and institutions. Additionally, leading scholars have contributed new “Analyzing the Evidence” features that engage students with the questions and methods that political students use themselves.
The 2014 Election Update editions include results and analysis from the 2014 election results as well as updated discussions of other important political developments, such as Obama’s executive orders on immigration and the new limits on the filibuster. In addition, many figures and tables have been updated with the latest data.
