Overview

Am Gov 2010 / Edition 2

Published annually at the start of each year this text provides unmatched currency and is the first student-centered American government text. It provides instructors who normally choose either a big, brief, or essentials text with scholarly, succinct, and conventionally organized core content; and a magazine format that engages students and motivates active participation in our democracy. All this, and at a price that students prefer.

What’s more, AM GOV is the product of serious scholarship: painstaking student and instructor reviews, surveys, and focus groups, as well as and ethnographic research into student study behaviors, preferences, and needs. AM GOV brings serious fun to American Government through its quality, currency, features, and format. The new 2010 edition offers an exciting new feature calledFirst 100 Days which showcases the actions of the Obama administration during the first 100 days, and applies fundamental concepts of American Government to this historic presidency.
