An invaluable resource for social studies and civics classes. Students will gain a better understanding and appreciation of citizens' fundamental rights and issues related to government and society with these books. This new series is certain to enlighten students about the Bill of Rights and the rights we have as citizens, which we sometimes take for granted.

Though all of us complain about our politicians, only slightly more than half of all eligible Americans bother to vote. As teenagers approach voting age, they may wonder why this right is so important. This book explains the historical struggle to obtain this right and what happens to our democracy when we fail to exercise our voting privileges.
