Review:

"[GOVT] offers students real links to real politics. I like the theme of the book, which follows that of America At Odds. [And GOVT] helps students to think critically about politics. Basically, everything you could want in a politics textbook is in GOVT.... My greatest limitation is that I do not have enough time during the semester to cover everything. So, knowing that students can rely on the textbook to fill in some of the gaps is very reassuring." - Paul Frank, Sacramento City College

"I have used other textbooks and am currently using GOVT because of its strengths and courage to address more controversial topics without trying to politicize anything--makes for more interesting reading." - Michaela Fazecas, University of Central Florida

"I cannot deny the fact that students did not read [my previous textbook] and are reading GOVT. The students have said they prefer this style of text. . . . [T]hey seem to engage with the style of GOVT better than other texts. . . . The Learning Outcomes are a very effective tool, and are especially useful in how they highlight the beginning of the chapter, the beginning of each section of the chapter and then tie it all together with the review cards at the end of the text. The Learning Outcomes easily relate to the Student Learning Outcomes on the course syllabus, bridging the course materials to the course documents." - Wendy Johnston, SUNY Adirondack Community College

"I believe that the content is exceptional. . . . I would say the greatest strengths of [GOVT] are the fascinating debate and discussion questions and articles throughout the text. In addition, the writing style is very engaging. Finally the writing level is comprehensible to the average community college student, especially with the excellent use of graphs and charts throughout the text." - Paul Davis, Truckee Meadows Community College
