"American Government and Politics Today: The Essentials provides students with a relevant, interactive text that attempts to take them outside of the classroom environment and into their everyday lives. Having the ability to link the past to the present, while also thinking ahead to the future, is a difficult task for authors in a subject seemingly overloaded with textbook options. However, Bardes, Shelley and Schmidt have adopted a rational approach and create a learning environment within the textbook itself to keep with the theme of having students as active, informed citizens."
"It covers the necessary material in a clear and concise manner... The tables and figures are universally useful."
"[This] book has the unique ability to be very instructor- and student-centered. Most texts are one or the other."
