The textbook is very informative and easy to read. This textbook is written in engaging prose that both keep the attention of the student without diluting the topic with unnecessary simplification. It explains the basics in a very simple and easy to understand way. Illustrates the impact that government has on the daily lives of each and every American, particularly its effect on students. Designed around the theme that “politics matters,” this descriptive text emphasizes public policy what government actually does. I received the textbook fast and sooner than anticipated. It was in great condition. I was happy with the whole process and outcome. I will use ecampus again.
