More About This Textbook

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.

    Cool new type of textbook

    My political science class used this textbook and I thought it was pretty interesting. At first glance, it looks like a magazine. It's very portable and easy to read. They really try to relate it to modern college students. It's really unlike any textbook I've ever had.
