Longman Publishing, 2003 - Political Science - 720 pages
The highly lauded politics matters focus of this accessible Brief text has been expanded in the new edition to include new ways students can connect to their government--through the news media and the Internet. In the latest edition, an exciting new Issues of the Times feature presents students with articles from The New York Times about controversies facing our nation today. Students are asked to think critically about the issues, and encouraged to see how politics and the news media affect them. New Get Connected end-of-chapter exercises ask students to get connected to their political system through the Internet by investigating hot political issues and evaluating their own positions on these topics. These new features are extensions of the text's long-standing politics matters theme. Through a variety of text features and a strong emphasis on public policy, Government in America shows students the impact that government has on their daily lives, encouraging them to see how vitally important it is to study, understand, and participate in our political system.
