A contemporary framework without the fluff.
Kollman presents students with a simple framework—politics is about collective dilemmas and the institutions that solve them—and applies it consistently throughout. How can 535 members of Congress get anything done? What is the committee system? How can the president change the immigration policy? Can it be done through executive orders? Instead of burying concepts in history or minutiae, Kollman's concise text gets right to the heart of political science.
