Framing its content within a resonant “politics matters” theme and emphasizing public policy throughout, this accessible text illustrates the impact that government has on the daily lives of each and every American, particularly its effect on students. Through engaging and interactive boxed features and a focus on the issues that matter to most, this practical text motivates students to become active participants in our political system, and helps overcome the biggest challenge instructors face in this course—student apathy toward government.  The brief edition of this bestselling text includes the streamlined content of the comprehensive version.
