“This ebook has the unique ability to be very student and instructor-centered. Most textbooks are one or the other.”

“American Government and Politics Today: The Essentials provides all students with a relevant; interactive textbook 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; Shelley; Bardes; and Schmidt have adopted a rational approach and create a learning environment within the ebook itself to keep with the theme of having students as active; informed citizens.”
