Affectionately dubbed the “woolly reader” by my classmates and I, American Government: Readings and Cases was required reading for my AP American Government class this past semester. While it was nice having a compilation of essays for reference when one essay referred to another, Woll’s comments at the end of each essay didn’t add much to my understanding of the essays included in American Government: Readings and Cases.
This book contains several good articles, court cases, and excerpts from important (real) political science books. You can skip some of the articles as they quite often fail to give any substantial evidence for their claims. I would've preferred that the passages were not abridged. The editor does provide some good background information sometimes though.
