Summary

This new condensed version of the author's best-selling AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS TODAY, (which is popular across the country for its balanced, unbiased, and up-to-date coverage of constitutional, governmental, political, social, and economic structures and processes and for the way it encourages students to become involved in the political process) covers the fundamentals, offering less policy and analysis coverage and fewer features to distract readers from the basics of American Government.
