CLASSICS IN AMERICAN GOVERNMENT is a readable and relatively brief collection of many of the most important readings in American government. This set of documents were written by revolutionaries, presidents, U.S. Supreme Court judges, historians, political scientists, journalists, and politicians?but all share the commonality of recognized importance. Each selection is generally acknowledged to be a major statement about some aspect of American government, hence their designation as "classics."
