Overview

Students are often hesitant to become involved in the political process, but American Government and Politics Today 2009-2010 Edition, 14e inspires readers to take action. The book uses intriguing examples and hands-on exercises to engage readers in the fascinating intricacies of American government — including details from the recent presidential election. As it introduces concepts, it illustrates that active participation can be as simple as calling a local politician to share an opinion, registering to vote, or viewing a town council meeting on local access cable — demonstrating how small steps can make a big difference.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The chapter of congress is great, along with the chapters on the presidency and the courts."

"The American Government and Politics Today text is laid out logically, its content and pedagogy are clear and comprehensive, and its ancillary package is impressively expansive."

"I was introduced to American Government and Politics Today when it was adopted by the Department for use during a two year cycle. I simply fell in love with the depth, substance and logic of how the material was presented. … I like the way that the chapters are organized and topics are addressed. Information is presented in a logical and easily understood manner. The photographs and illustrations help bring to life the topics that is being addressed and helps students understand better why the material is relevant to them and their families."

"The book is one of the most thorough and comprehensive books I have seen in American Government. It is an excellent text."

"(Schmidt is) an evolved textbook that covers the core content in an approachable and easily digestible format — a good place to introduce students to both the dynamics and challenges of American style democracy and governance."
