Overview

Focusing on the current and historical conflicts and controversies that define America as a nation, GOVT2, CALIFORNIA 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. Ten additional chapters by Larry Gerston and Terry Christianson cover California politics, including updated content on the current economy. As part of the 4LTR Press, GOVT2, CALIFORNIA 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.
