Summary

A great argument winner, this compendium of some 200 tables of statistics on essential aspects of US government will help general readers, students, and journalists back up their opinions with facts on hot topics such as abortion, defense spending, and foreign policy. Tables and figures, some with data going as far back as the 1930s, are arranged in sections on elections and parties, campaign finance and political action committees, public opinion, media, Congress, the three branches of government, and foreign, military, social, and economic policy. Chapter introductions offer background on interpreting statistical material. This edition is reorganized for ease of use, and includes data on 1996 elections, state term limits, approval ratings, and the national debt. An annotated reference guide directs readers to thousands of additional sources of data. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
