Review:

“It is important to have a mission, goals, and a well-defined endgame for any project, policy, or effort. Government by the People does that by indicating to the reader where we are going, how we're going to get there, and what we will learn along the way.”–Lawson Veasey, Jacksonville State University

 

“A well-balanced approach to American culture and government. Government by the People continues to improve with each edition.”–Kevin Sims, Cedarville University

 

“A comprehensive and great text on American politics that is easily accessible to undergraduate students.”–Linda Trautman, Ohio University-Lancaster
