Description

GATEWAYS TO DEMOCRACY continues with its framework of “gateways” to help students conceptualize participation and civic engagement--even democracy itself--with reference to how individuals access the political system. This approach helps students better see the relevance of government in their lives. GATEWAYS uniquely incorporates policy into a section at the end of each chapter, complementing the way many instructors teach the course and helping students better understand the connection between public opinion, policy-making and how public policy applies to their lives. The second edition, complete with 2012 election updates, emphasizes critical thinking by clearly outlining learning outcomes and enhancing student learning with self-assessment “Checkpoints” and a clear chapter study plan. Chapters in this ESSENTIALS version are condensed to accommodate a shorter format but preserve the integrity of the text’s hallmarks.
