American Politics Today

Full Second Edition (See all editions)


William T. Bianco (Author, Indiana University, Bloomington), David T. Canon (Author, University of Wisconsin, Madison)


Politics is about conflict.

Are your students cynical about conflict in American politics? Do they believe politicians generally fight for the sake of fighting, or to gain short-term advantage? Do they believe policy makers should simply set aside their differences and “listen to what the people want”? Bianco and Canon show students that conflict—and the compromise that is necessary to resolve it—is a normal, healthy part of the process that makes American democracy work.
