From Revolution to a City on a Hill
The book opens with an examination of the founding of the country and the Constitution. Subsequent chapters examine Federalism, civil liberties and civil rights, the impact of public opinion, and the media and politics. The text also addresses political parties and interest groups, campaigns and elections, Congress, the federal bureaucracy, federal courts, and the Supreme Court.
Developed to help students not only fully understand the national government, but learn to evaluate its proper role and scope, From Revolution to a City on a Hill is well suited to survey courses in political science, American government, and United States history.
