Focusing on the current and historical conflicts and controversies that define America as a nation, GOVT 2 is a streamlined and extremely current text for the American Government course. Its motivating debate theme and appealing magazine-like format speak directly to today's student. A new chapter feature—"Our Government's Response to the Economic Crisis"—helps explain the current economic downturn and the ensuing economic policies. As part of the 4LTR Press, GOVT 2 was created through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process. It is an accessible, affordable approach to the course that accommodates the diverse lifestyles of today's learners through its full suite of learning tools. These tools—correlated to the text chapter-by-chapter—include chapter-in-review cards, video, simulations, podcasts, and quizzes that allow students to learn and study wherever they are and whenever they have time.
