Audible Editor Reviews

Adrian Mulraney’s soothing and inviting Australian lilt guides the listener through Jon Roper’s thoroughly researched yet accessible primer on American politics, which spans the country’s inception in the Declaration of Independence to the historic election of Barack Obama, while providing historical context and insight into its core principles and foundations, such as the balance of power, the formation of parties, and policies regarding military intervention.

Regardless of one’s opinions on American policy, there’s no denying its influence stretches far and wide, and Roper’s intelligent and even-handed overview is a great place to start for those seeking to gain a better understanding of the U.S. political system.
