Eleven common topics are discussed in this book by the authors. Very detailed research is reviewed. This helps the read understand that some topics have some degree of consensus among professors of American political science. Furthermore, those topics that do not have a firm consensus of opinion are described, so that the reader can see where more research is needed and is indeed happening. This book is good for general readership as well as for undergraduate and graduate courses.
