A complement to The Supreme Court A to Z and The Presidency A to Z, this indispensable guide, with nearly 340 multipage entries, is organized alphabetically by topic and subject surname. Studded with quotations and illustrations, historical and contemporary, the pages-although still text-heavy-are designed to expedite information comprehension and typically contain "Closer Look" boxes describing little-known facts. Entries include related subject page numbers in graphically prominent sidebars. The book closes with congressional system charts, political chairpersonship listings, maps, and an extensive, thematically organized bibliography. Highly recommended for civics-related collections.
