HASH(0xa3d43f18) out of 5 stars Just what I needed Sept. 17 2013
By Caroline - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a college poly sci class. I really needed the 6th edition, but wasn't willing to splurge for it. Got the fifth edition super cheap and in great condition, and honestly I see barely any differences between the two books other than simple layouts. It has all the same information.

HASH(0xa3d47144) out of 5 stars stop yapping about the government and read this book instead! Dec 18 2013
By Greg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thank you, Mr. Kernell, for writing this book! If I wanted to be a politician I'd use it as a manual. Otherwise, this book explains the logic of American politics very clearly and without any pretentious glorification - if you seek to understand how our government works and what it is, you'd better read this book first
