Packed with current examples and practical insight, Wilson/Dilulio/Bose/Levendusky's AMERICAN GOVERNMENT: INSTITUTIONS AND POLICIES, 17th Edition, gives you a clear understanding of the U.S. government -- and your role in it. Highlighting emerging issues in American politics, the authors focus on the importance of governmental institutions, the historical development of governmental procedures and policies, as well as who governs in the U.S. and to what ends. New coverage includes the Trump administration, results of the 2018 and 2020 elections, the nation's response to the COVID-19 crisis, the media's role in promoting political polarization, climate change, the U.S. wealth gap, 21st century wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and more. Numerous features throughout the text help you maximize your study time, while MindTap provides you with a wealth of anywhere, anytime digital learning tools.

A former president of the American Political Science Association (APSA), Dr. Wilson is the only political scientist to win three of the four lifetime achievement awards presented by the APSA. In 2003, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian award. Professor Wilson passed away in March 2012 after battling cancer. His work helped shape the field of political science in the United States. His many years of service to this textbook remain evident on every page and will continue for many editions to come.
