He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian award, in 2003. Professor Wilson passed away in March of 2012 after battling cancer. His work helped shape the field of political science in the United States. His many years of service to his American Government book remain evident on every page and will continue for many editions to come.Review :
"This book provides an excellent historical development of the American political system that is easy to grasp. It covers the nuts and bolts of the American political system in a comprehensive and coherent manner. The book also provides excellent examples and supporting data to back up claims."
"Wilson's scholarship is superb and he doesn't have an ideological ax to grind."
