The Essentials versions of GATEWAYS TO DEMOCRACY introduces readers to the American political system, pointing out in each chapter the "gateways" that facilitate, or at times block, participation. In emphasizing how the political system works-and how individuals and groups have opened gates to influence public policy-the book helps readers see the relevance of government in their lives. The third edition provides coverage of the 2014 midterm elections as well as enhanced discussion of the politics, policies, and issues affecting Latinos in the United States.

About the Author:

Geer has been a visiting scholar at Harvard University and Princeton University. Geer teaches Introduction to American Politics, as well as specialty courses on elections and campaigns. His teaching has won numerous teaching awards at both Arizona State University and Vanderbilt University. Geer is a frequent commentator in the press, with appearances on all the major networks (e.g., Fox News, CBS Evening News, CNN), and he has been quoted in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the LA Times. He also has done interviews for major international outlets, such as BBC and Al Jazeera.

Review:

"Gateways to Democracy is well written, balanced, and offers an effective blend of theory, historical analysis, and specific case studies. The tensions between 'gates' and 'gateways' allows my students to consider the opportunities that democracy in America has provided while challenging them to wrestle with the contemporary reality of shortcomings and inequity within the nation's political processes. End-of-chapter questions, summaries, and lists of important terms also ensure that my students have all the resources they need to make the most of this excellent text."

"Providing learning objectives, checkpoints, and learning outcomes for students helps their ability to focus studying efforts. This is especially important with introductory courses. I believe these are valuable tools for students."
