Challenge your students to ENGAGE in the conversation and process; THINK about the ideas, history, structure, and function; and DEBATE the merits of American government and politics in the 21st century.

In a storytelling approach that weaves contemporary examples together with historical context, By the People: Debating American Government, Second Edition, explores the themes and ideas that drive the great debates in American government and politics. It introduces students to big questions like Who governs? How does our system of government work? What does government do? and Who are we?

Review:


"'Engage, Think, Debate' should become the pedagogical theme of all American Government courses in the 21st century."--E. Perry Ballard, Daytona State College


"A comprehensive overview of American political processes that is engaging and informative. The authors continually challenge students to think critically about controversial issues and include relevant and thoughtful examples to reinforce learning."--Steven Nawara, Valdosta State University


"The writing style is terrific and accessible. Students like the way it is written and visual learners will appreciate the graphics and 'By the Numbers.' Given the content, writing, organization, and price, there is not a better text on the market."--John Shively, Longview Community College


"By the People is comprehensive, engaging, and sensitive to cultivating relevant connections between students and politics (which can be all too abstract at times)."--Jay Cerrato, Bronx Community College


"Throughout the text, the issues that are selected are important to students and they will be engaged with the alternating viewpoints that are summarized. From an instructor's perspective, I will use this to stimulate debate and discussion among students."--Michael Petersen, Utah State University
