Review:

"The Schmidt textbook is engaging. It offers a careful study of American government while educative and well organized."

"A well written, comprehensive look at the foundations of government and the current challenges that we face as our country evolves. . . . The authors do a good job of explaining concepts and theories."

"Good coverage of the issues regarding gender, race, disability issues. Sparks great conversations in my classes. . . . The reason I use this text is the examples/context provided for abstract theories and the topical critical essays."
