Overview

AM GOV, published annually at the start of each year, is the first student-centered American government text. It provides instructors who normally choose either a big, brief, or essentials text with scholarly, succinct, and conventionally organized core content; unmatched currency; and a magazine format that engages students and motivates active participation in our democracy. All this, and at a price that students prefer.

What’s more, AM GOV is the product of serious scholarship; painstaking student and instructor reviews, surveys, and focus groups; and ethnographic research into student studying behaviors, habits, preferences, and needs. In its quality, currency, theme, features, format, and price, AM GOV brings serious fun to American Government.
