9780006863625: Understanding American Politics

Behind the brash showmanship of modern Republican and Democratic party conventions, the vicious electioneering, the spectacle of congressional hearings and the continuous, unforgiving media attention, there lies the world's longest running experiment in practical government, an experiment as confused, contradictory and colourful as the people who run it. This guide offers an up-to-date account of the workings, functions and relations of American institutions, from the Constitution and the Presidency, through Congress and the Supreme Court, to the complex bureaucracy which underpins them all.

From the Back Cover:

Behind the showmanship of the modern Republican and Democratic party conventions, the vicious electioneering, the spectacle of congressional hearings and the continuous, unforgiving media media attention, there lies the world's longest running experiment in practical government, an experiment as confused, contradictory and colourful as the people who run it.

In this concise and illuminating guide to this bemusing polity, Denenberg offers an up-to-date account of the workings, functions and relations of American political institutions, from the Constitution to the Presidency, through Congress and the Supreme Court, to the complex bureaucracy that underpins them all. This Fourth Edition is fully revised to take account of all the major political and constitutional developments of the Bush and Clinton presidencies.

"Three cheers for R.V.Denenberg for this brief, lucid, accurate and exceedingly informative study of a difficult and important subject."
HUGH BROGAN, author of the 'Penguin History of the United States of America'
