Summary

Developed in partnership with teachers and students to meet the learning, study, and assessment goals essential to learner success, THE CHALLENGE OF DEMOCRACY, STUDENT CHOICE, 2e incorporates to-the-point coverage, eliminates extraneous material, and integrates pedagogy that reinforces key concepts. Incorporating the very latest research and events central to American politics, the text thoroughly explores freedom, order, and equality as political values; the majoritarianism vs. pluralism debate; and globalization's effect on American politics. Extensively updated, the Second Edition is packed with new examples, figures, data, and current discussions, including a balanced retrospective of the Bush presidency as well as new comparative features that place the United States in a global context. In addition, online learning environment AmericansGoverning.org engages learners in the political process through a variety of media.
