Summary

Published annually at the start of each year, Am Govprovides unmatched currency and is the first student-centered American Government text. It provides instructors who normally choose a big, brief, or essentials text with scholarly, succinct, and conventionally organized core content. A magazine format engages students and motivates active participation in our democracy (all this, and at a price that students prefer). Painstaking student and instructor reviews, surveys, and focus groups; as well as ethnographic research into student study behaviors, preferences, and needs, make Am Govthe product of serious scholarship. Am Govbrings serious fun to American Government through its quality, currency, features, and format.
