A Concise History of American Politics

US Political Science up to the 21st century

This book is intended to be an efficient way to look at the primary events and aspects of the foundation and evolution of American politics. Because political events and laws affect every one of us on each day of our lives, it seems helpful to look at the structures of our political systems. A Concise History of American Politics is, as the title suggests, a simple recounting of how we proceeded to become what we are as a political entity. Our systems of learning in both the areas of politics and of history tend to be focused on specific events or specific theories. Maybe a brief, concentrated presentation on the broad picture of our past can be helpful in keeping track how the exigencies of our constitutional republic have evolved. Hopefully, it is even-handed and lucid.
