GREAT text on US Govevrnment March 31, 2011
I have never enjoyed reading textbooks; however, this textbook kept my attention and was very informative. I believe EVERY US citizen should read this textbook. It goes over all the basics of our constitution and government setup, very good textbook, very good explanation of terms, helped me get an A from a tough instructor although the textbook was something else. It's definitely a 5 star textbook.
