Written by Steffen W. Schmidt, Mack C. Shelley, and Jane E. Clayton, this reader is updated to include the latest issues in American political debate. You will find numerous readings that deal with controversial issues, legal conflicts, and ethical judgement calls directly related to academia and students. Some topics include: diversity on trial, politicians on the web, campaign reform, and war in cyberspace. These topics will generate an exciting and productive debate on important issues facing Americans, that will ultimately enhance students' critical thinking skills, the ability to engage in group or teamwork projects, active learning motivation, and communication skills, as well as foster a liberal education and stimulate positive, informed citizenship. All articles, 2-4 per chapter, have been updated for this edition.
