Summary
    The Drama of the American Political System is a volume of canonical essays discussing the head and heart of American national politics. Exploring the full panoply of American national politics, these essays collectively suggest that our political system may best be understood as a dramatic metaphor. This metaphor asks us to watch the play of American politics in a theater representative of our polity. We will look across a stage that fragments power horizontally and vertically, and to a background of unifying characteristics called the American political culture. While in the foreground, we will see an arrangement of actors that originate from a core of national political institutions. From there we move out to a semi-periphery of political organizations, and finally disappear into the shadows where the media, political participators, and public opinion make their presence felt.

    Matthew Caverly was born in Woodruff, Wisconsin on May 6, 1971. He graduated from Vero Beach Sr. High School in 1990, served in the U.S. Army for three years, and attended college and graduate school at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. He holds a Ph.D. in political science and works as a adjunct assistant professor at Santa Fe College. He primarily researches and teaches in the area of American government and politics.
