Description:

This text's critical thinking approach to American government challenges students to evaluate the quality of democracy in America within a unique framework that offers a holistic view of our system.This unique text challenges students to think critically about American government and politics through the use of two compelling organizational themes. The first theme, "Using the Democracy Standard," provide students with a yardstick for evaluating how democratic our system of government is, and asks students to apply their critical thinking skills throughout each chapter. The text's second theme, "Using the Framework," helps students develop a holistic understanding of our political system by demonstrating how government, politics, and society are deeply intertwined and interact in recognizable patterns, while also emphasizing the structural factorssuch as the economy, culture, and technologythat are important participants in these interactions.
