Learn how American politics affect public policy

Government in America, 2012 Election Edition looks at government’s impact on the daily lives of Americans with a public policy approach. This text introduces the main features of American politics and asks “how should we govern?” and “what should government do?” Government in America helps students see that politics drives what government can–or cannot do–for the people.
