"There are a lot of bad republicans; there are no good democrats."—Ann CoulterIn today’s climate of hyper-partisanship, blurred lines between political news, analysis, and entertainment, and outrageous comments from the chattering classes, who better than Tom Patterson to provide students with the tools and context to make informed judgments and become skilled political thinkers? Patterson’s We the People has long been a best seller for American government courses due to its insightful, readable, and balanced portrayal of the American political system. The 9th edition continues this tradition of excellence while also introducing a new emphasis on political thinking at a time when the partisan divide seemingly could not be wider and unbiased political information is often drowned out by other sources. With expertise in the areas of public opinion, the media, and elections among other areas, Tom Patterson is a voice you can trust to help develop your students critical thinking skills when it comes to politics and political science. As Patterson notes, “Political thinking takes place within the context of a person’s political interests and values, which can lead equally thoughtful individuals to reach opposing opinions on the same issue.” If you are looking for learning materials to help ensure your students leave your course among those “thoughtful individuals” that will carry the debate forward in measured and informed ways, We the People is the right choice for you.

Talk about We the People: A Concise Introduction To American Politics

This is good for a textbook. I bought it for my political science class. The boring part is that, in each chapter it covers a lot of case examples (state vs. etc.) But within the first 5 chapters the reader will gain a clear understanding of how the constitution and the bill of rights came to be, and how it allows us the freedoms to do a lot of things today, that we take for granted
It's a text book. If you're buying it, it's probably required reading for a class so I doubt that you care very much about the reviews it's getting. It was pretty easy to read and understand though, so it's got that going for it. Definitely not as boring as a lot of the texts I've been forced to read in my decades of schooling.
This was my college text for American Politics. The chapters go thru the constitution, describes how policies and parties came about. I thought the book went a bit too much into the "opinions & views" of each topic with what men, women, foreigners, blacks poor, rich (etc) each thought. It should have just focused on the facts of the constitution, as the class was too short to accommodate the whole book. I guess this might be a good book to read if you needed to pass a citizenship test. EVERY AMERICAN should know this stuff out of high school...
Bought this for a Pol-Sci class. Being one who never was interested nor did well in any type of gov’t/political class, this book was surprising well written. Un-biased, easy to read and follow, and straightforward.
Had to buy it for school. Some of the stuff in it is worth the information but the way it's written sounds like someone trying to guilt you into agreeing with everything the government does
excellent book, easy to understand and great examples. the layout is helpful and the table of content is a great reference source to quickly locate information on specific topic.
Nice book, used it for my political science class. Has the constitution included on back
Very happy, fast shipping, thanks.
