American Government: Readings and Cases

Paperback / softback
This reader is a unique blend of classic and contemporary selections that encourages students to examine the evolution of our political system. It combines the best of traditional classic readings-including short essays from The Federalist Papers-with current topical readings that heighten student interest. Each reading is followed by critical thinking questions that ask students to analyze the political issues facing us today and to think about how these issues relate to, or have evolved from, the principles upon which our government was founded. The overriding theme of this reader is the idea that in order to understand where we are today, we must understand where we've come from.
