Editorial Reviews

Review

"I have been using the Welch text on and off over the years, and it has always had the right nuts and bolts without going into odd directions. The emphasis on diversity is excellent. I have been a reviewer more than once of the Women's Caucus Award, and I've read texts that were good examples of who should not win the award. The attention to diversity is critical in our time." --Terri Fine, University of Central Florida

"I especially like the background discussion on the formation of the Constitution. The authors do a good job of examining the 'why' here, and the chapter is clear, concise, and fits together nicely." --Richard Hungate, Joliet Junior College

"I appreciate the use of student-friendly language, not obtuse verbiage, in conveying the 'why' of politics and its relevance to our daily lives." --Griffin Hathaway, Illinois Central College

Format: Paperback
I've never read a more biased piece of propaganda BS in my life. It fails to highlight any republican achievement and bashes the party at every chance. Meanwhile the democrat party is basically hailed by Jesus Christ himself and overseen by the genius and creation of all that is holy and mighty. This BS needs to be pulled out of the classroom and replaced with a balanced opinionated publication. What a joke!
