Canon et al. (political science, U. of Wisconsin, Madison) bring together a reader that presents opposing perspectives on contemporary political issues. Each set of readings, which are extracted from journals, magazines, and newspapers, is preceded by an introduction and ends with discussion questions. Topics include political culture, amending the Constitution, federalism, civil liberties and civil rights, blogs, the electoral college, the presidency, judicial confirmation, and economic, social, and foreign policy. Many of the readings, which range from 1989 to 2006 (with one from 1952), are new to this edition. There is no index.
