Everything about this dynamic book—from its engaging writing and examples, to its bold graphics and photos, to its innovative learning pedagogy and interactive assessment—is designed to get students to participate in their learning, in the classroom, and in all aspects of American politics.

Lead author Dan Shea, along with co-authors Joanne Connor Green and Christopher E. Smith, teamed up to write an American Government text that helps students experience the impact of government in their daily lives and inspires them to work to affect that government in return.  Written with the belief that the American Government course is critically important for our students—as well as for the long-term stability of the democratic process—Living Democracy helps students draw connections between course topics and current events and find a role for themselves in politics and government.

Now in its second edition, this attention-getting text is building on its message of participation:  improvements to its innovative pedagogical system with even more assessment opportunities help students participate more effectively in their own learning process, while new Student Profiles of politically active young people from around the world continue to promote students’ political participation.
