Description

Think critically about American Government

This unique text challenges students to think critically about American government and politics.  Authored to promote the critical thinking skills needed to become active, engaged citizens, The Struggle for Democracy asks students to continually analyze the political happenings around them and not become apathetic.

The book uses two themes.  The first theme, “The Democracy Standard,” helps students understand what democracy is. The second theme, “A Framework for Analyzing American Government and Politics,” helps students develop a holistic understanding of our political system by demonstrating how government, politics, and society are deeply intertwined.
