Overview

Updated in a new 3rd edition, Living Democracy helps students draw connections between course topics and current events and find a role for themselves in politics and government. Everything about this dynamic book–from its engaging writing and examples, to its bold graphics and photos, to its innovative learning pedagogy and interactive assessment–is designed to get students to participate in their learning, in the classroom, and in all aspects of American politics. By implementing cutting-edge learning theory-based techniques to engage students and help them retain important information, Living Democracy has set a new standard for how textbooks can help students learn. The Alternate Edition includes the same coverage as the comprehensive version but without the chapters on policy.
