This book explores the uniqueness of the American system of government and how it acquired its distinctiveness.


Winston Churchill once quipped that America and Britain were separated by a common language. Kingdon (U. of Wisconsin-Madison), who teaches introductory American government courses, concurs regarding the uniqueness of the US system of government; explains how American ideology acquired its distinctiveness; compares it to that of other industrialized nations; and argues for a more balanced return to pragmatism.
