This is good for a textbook. I bought it for my political science class. The boring part is that, in each chapter it covers a lot of case examples (state vs. etc.) But within the first 5 chapters the reader will gain a clear understanding of how the constitution and the bill of rights came to be, and how it allows us the freedoms to do a lot of things today, that we take for granted

This is the textbook required for an introductory politics class. The layout is study-friendly and easy to understand, and having the vocabulary words defined in the pages' margins is really helpful.

I feel that anyone studying political science should check this book out. It's very clear and easy to read, plus it has online quizzes to test your understanding. I would highly recommend to anyone trying to get a better understanding of political science outside (or inside) the classroom.

The book was clear and concise. It was an excellent supplement for my US government class in college. One suggestion would be to give more examples with the concepts.
