Summary, etc.:
In this volume, young historians will learn about the realities of politics in America, from the importance of political parties, to the lobbying of interest groups, to the influence of the media. There is more to the political life of the United States than just the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the U.S. government itself. Readers will learn about the two major U.S. political parties, third parties, how lobbyists influence the governmental process, and the importance of money. Special sections focus on the role of the media -- from the influential images of political cartoonists to the coverage in newspapers and magazines and on radio, TV, and the Internet -- on politics and government in the United States. Detailed tables rank the leading interest groups and the most widely read newspapers and magazines.
