History Makers. Reinforcing the importance of being an active participant in–and contributor to–political change, this inspirational feature profiles influential political figures, some contemporary, some historical. History Makers features active people representing divergent parties, ideologies, and agendas, but all sharing the common trait of engagement in the political process, from America's most important public servants to its ordinary, and sometimes, extraordinary, citizens, including FDR, LBJ, Martin Luther King, Jr., William Rehnquist, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
The Changing Face of U.S. Politics. Exemplifying the ever-increasing level of diversity in the American political landscape, including how race and gender are changing the way the American government works, these unique boxes reflect the concerns and experiences of ethnic and minority groups in American politics..
How Other Nations Govern. These data-rich boxes give students insight into foreign political structures and processes by looking at a diverse group of countries, including Britain, France, Japan, India, China, and Mexico, and showing how their approaches to government are similar to and different from those of the United States.
