Opis: Public Opinion - Zoe Oxley, Rosalee Clawson

Exploring the tension between ideals and their practice, the authors focus on exemplary studies so that students gain a richer understanding of key findings and the research process as well as seeing methods applied in context. "Clawson and Oxley's book is impressive: it offers broad coverage of the relevant areas of interest, but places public opinion in the context of the broader democracy...I especially appreciate the coverage of political trust." -- Professor Andrea M. Quenette "I like that Public Opinion: Democratic Ideas, Democratic Practice helps my students think more deeply about the processes by which citizens learn about politics, the motivations behind their beliefs, and the biases they bring to political thinking. It facilitates a more sophisticated understanding of citizens as political actors." -- Professor Erin C. Cassese, PhD "Clawson and Oxley's Public Opinion: Democratic Ideals, Democratic Practice is smart, yet accessible to my students. I appreciate that its length and organization has allowed me to use it for both quarter and semester length courses" -- Professor Gar Culbert, Ph.D.Part I: What Should the Role of Citizens Be in a Democratic Society?
