SUMMARY

Government in America Brief Eighth Edition, 2006 Election Update George C. Edwards, III Martin P. Wattenberg Robert L. Lineberry This brief edition of Government in America continues to offer its highly-praised public policy approach and politics matters theme. It has been updated with complete coverage of the 2006 midterm elections and other important topics, such as American foreign policy in the Middle East. Government in America illustrates the impact that government has on the daily lives of each and every American, motivating students to become active participants in all aspects of political life. NEW TO THIS EDITION Complete updated coverage of the 2006 midterm elections. Young People and Politics boxes appear in each chapter and reinforce the books theme of politics matters by focusing on how young people matter to politics and how, in turn, politics matters to them. Some boxes illustrate how policies specifically impact young adults, while others show how their political behavior affects public policy. FEATURES Making a Difference boxes throughout the text present the stories and experiences of individuals involved in politics, showing the impact that even one person can have on government when they get involved. How You Can Make a Difference boxes give students explicit, step-by-step advice on how they can get involved and foster change in our system. You Are the Policymaker boxes throughout the text put students in the role of policymaker, asking them to analyze an issue and reach a policy decision. Issues of the Times boxes offer selections from The New York Times and ask students to think critically about the news and how it affects them. Each of these two-page spreads is accompanied by an introduction, pedagogy that emphasizes key points in the article, and critical reading questions to guide students through the issues of the day.

I liked being able to view the results of the quizzes immediately instead of having to wait for them to be graded by the instructor. What Students Are Saying About Online Activities: The activities were my favorite part of the course. They took a different approach to an interesting subject and made it more applicable to real-life situations. This made the subject seem even more real than before.
