Editorial Reviews

Review

The Struggle for Democracy is an excellent text for those who want to help their students become engaged citizens and to understand the fundamentals of our government. This text covers all the essentials of American government without overwhelming students with excessive detail and erroneous tangents.”–Laura Schneider, Grand Valley State University

 

The Struggle for Democracy is perfect for first-year Political Science students. It provides key historical background and introduces students to the key topics and issues surrounding American government in our society today.”–Mary Anne Clarke, Rhode Island College

 

"The Struggle for Democracy endeavors to give students an explanation for why the American political system functions and governs the way in which it does–not just description."–Richard Unruh, Fresno Pacific University

.. Now more than ever before in history Americans do not trust their Government. Yet, most people don’t even know how the government operates or significant dates in American History. This textbook provides usable tools for critically analyzing our political system and making judgments for how well our government works. The text is comprehensible, lays a good foundation for understanding government and politics, and provides food for thought.

The book is typical for any text book. It does have interesting views from political scientists, and still tries to remain unbiased.

I'm using this book for Political Science I but the questions don't line up with the questions that the professor request. It's vague.
Although the book itself is a good read and very informative, it's just the way it's being used for the subject.
