Politics in America: A Guide to the Two-Party System is a primer about the political system in the United States. Author Frank P. Daversa divided his book into six chapters: 1) a delineation of the constituency of both major parties, 2) party history, 3) party ideology, 4) sample legislation (a list of some of the most important laws passed from 1919 to 2010), 5) editorials (mostly reflecting Democratic viewpoints), and 6) a conclusion. Daversa says there are numerous factors involved in deciding how to vote and he writes to inform his readers about what those factors are. The author’s overall goal is to educate voters so they’ll be able to make an informed, intelligent decision when they cast their ballots on Election Day. The book isn’t specifically about any one issue or person, but about the entire political system.
Politics in America: A Guide to the Two-Party System is an interesting read. The book would be useful as a political text in either high school or college courses. The chapter about the histories of both the Democratic and Republican parties was especially fascinating. As author Frank P. Daversa points out, what the parties believe and how they govern have changed considerably over the years. The author writes from a liberal perspective, but anyone who approaches the book with an open mind will learn much about the United States' two-party system. It will make readers think about whether or not they agree with the author’s viewpoints. Anyone who is interested in politics, or wants to know more about the history of both major political parties or major legislation, would find this book useful.
