"I find the writing style to be perfect. I believe The Enduring Democracy is a well-researched and well-written survey on the federal government. The book provides a nice historical context and covers topics in a thoughtful and thorough manner"
"In my post-lecture survey of students, one comment students make all the time is that they enjoy the way The Enduring Democracy explores demographic changes in the country, and how it helps them understand political changes in the United States."
"In my opinion, the main strength of The Enduring Democracy is the writing style. Concepts are described and explained in a manner that is similar to how I explain them to my students. This provides them with an easy transition from reading to lecture. This book does a nice job of balancing readability with content. It feels up-to-date and the visual elements are engaging."
"The Enduring Democracy is an excellent core textbook for American Government. It is a clear presentation of the basic information with an emphasis on institutions and context. This text has been well-liked by my students. I like the strong institutionalist elements of the book, which pair well with its emphasis on accessibility for students. The balance between understanding the institutions, how they shape political behavior, and the influence of historical context is good. Further, it avoids the overly technical elements of some institutionalist texts.
