A lively, straight-forward approach to the basics of American Politics Written to engage students, and kept short to provide a flexible foundation for instructors, The Basics of American Politics covers all the terms and topics a student will need to understand the nuts-and-bolts of American government and politics. This title uses a dynamic game metaphor to engage students in the basics of the American political system and the contact sport of politics.

It ends by examining rival theories of who wins and who loses in American politics.

The Basics of American Government is a collaborative effort among eight current and one former faculty members in the Departments of Political Science and Criminal Justice at University of North Georgia. The purpose of this book is to offer a no-frills, low-cost, yet comprehensive overview of the American political system for students taking introductory courses in American national government. Furthermore, the work combines the best aspects of both a traditional textbook and a reader in that most chapters offer a piece of original scholarship as a case study to bolster or reinforce the material presented in the chapter. In addition, many chapters present a civic engagement-type exercise and discussion questions intended to challenge, engage, and foster student participation in the political system. The authors undertook this project for several reasons, most notably the high costs of textbooks for students and the lack of college-level scholarship found in most American Government texts. This 470-page, peer-reviewed, edited book that combines traditional material with original scholarship will cost students $27.99, well below market standards. All of the authors are experienced classroom instructors, subject matter experts, and published researchers in the field of American politics.

In kaum einem Bereich spuken so viele Irrtümer herum wie in der Ökonomie. Zudem sind sie so weit verbreitet, dass sie als gültige Lehrmeinung angesehen werden. Themen wie staatliche Zinsmanipulation, Sparen, Inflation, Mindestlöhne oder Branchenrettung, wie die der Banken, sind aktueller und missverstandener denn je. Deshalb ist es wichtig zu wissen, was wirklich hinter den Begriffen steckt, wie sie zusammenwirken und welche praktischen Folgen (staatliche) Eingriffe haben. Niemand könnte ein Verständnis wirtschaftlicher Grundlagen besser vermitteln als Henry Hazlitt. Als einer der ganz Großen der Österreichischen Schule wird er in einem Atemzug mit Mises, Hayek und Rothbard genannt. Seine Begabung für elegante, populäre Darstellungen wirtschaftlicher Zusammenhänge haben dieses Buch entstehen lassen. In 24 kurzweiligen Kapiteln vermittelt er sein umfassendes Wissen, von Steuern über die Idee der Vollbeschäftigung bis zu Preisen und Inflation. Die 24 wichtigsten Regeln der Wirtschaft, ein Klassiker der Ökonomie jetzt auf Deutsch und heute noch so aktuell wie zur Erstveröffentlichung 1946.

Throughout the book, [the authors] analyze politics in terms of three questions: What is? What's right? and What works? [This] book puts the basics of American politics into the normative as well as the descriptive context of political practice. [It] show[s] that all people, groups, and institutions - including government - affect the political process, either by engaging in politics actively and intentionally or by leaving it to others, and that all are therefore responsible for the quality of American democracy. The book encourages students to practice politics in ways that accord with their beliefs, values, talents, and expanding body of knowledge. It does so by equipping them with nonideological methods for understanding and evaluating political processes and issues and by giving them tools and information to help them practice politics in a variety of ways throughout their lives. -Pref.
