Review:

"This text covers the bases of American Government, and is an easy read with up-to-date student-oriented examples, with a nice amount of readable graphs, tables, and charts." -- Teri Bengtson, Elmhurst College

"I have examined other texts and found them to be too biased. I want to use a text that is thorough and factual. This is why I use the Schmidt text." -- Terence Lenio, McHenry County College

"It is an excellent basic text on American Government that gives the student a complete understanding of the structures of the American system and its colonial origins." -- Steven Rolnick, Western Connecticut State University
