Summary

Examine how American democracy is developing
Revel™ The Struggle for Democracy offers students the tools they need to critically analyze our political system and make judgments about how well our government works. Taking a fresh approach to common American government topics, authors Edward Greenberg and Benjamin Page provide an analytical framework for understanding how politics and government work, and encourage students to consider the questions “How democratic are we?” and “Can government do anything well?” In order to boost student engagement with key concepts, the 2016 Presidential Election Edition incorporates coverage of contemporary issues that dominate today’s headlines, as well as the most up-to-date data.

Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
