Appropriate for undergraduate courses in American Government, American Public Policy, Introduction to Political Science, and Political Economy. Reflecting post-Cold War America's shift in emphasis from foreign policy to domestic politics, these authors provide a lively, up-to-date exploration of the most crucial issues that are likely to face the country at the dawn of the 21st century. They employ a political economy approach throughout the text, examining each issue from the perspectives of historical background; U.S. interests, challenges, and constraints; policy options; and recommendations for the 21st century.
