Summary

This brief, comprehensive book provides a lively, narrative introduction to American Government and Politics. The approach of We the People is to present the material with a currency and relevancy that captures the vivid world of real-life politics. In addition, We the People challenges students to think critically by giving contextual understanding of major concepts and issues, encouraging them to think about the implications for themselves and society. We the People delves deeper into the basics than most brief books, and each of the 17 chapters (including 3 policy chapters) concludes with a reading selection as well as an extensive bibliography. We the People is accompanied by a CD and Online Learning Center that is unsurpassed in American Government.
