With an engaging visual design, an inexpensive price, and filled with contemporary content, THINK American Government 2012 Edition, 4/e is the American Government text your students will actually read. Informed by the latest research and including numerous real-world examples, it allows instructors to bring current events directly into the classroom with little additional work—and at less than half the cost of a traditional text.
Updated in a new 11th edition, American and Texas Government: Policy and Politics introduces the essentials of American government in a way that any student can understand. Known for its extremely student-friendly, jargon-free style, public policy is emphasized throughout to show students the impact that government has on their lives.
Government and Politics in the Lone Star State guides students through the historical, economic, demographic, and political environment that has made Texas government and political culture what it is. Drawing on their experiences in political science, journalism, and consulting, Tucker Gibson, Clay Robison, and new coauthor Joanne Connor Green explain Texas’s governmental institutions, the players who influence them, and how these factors compare to those in other states. The 2014 Elections and Updates Edition has been revised to meet the outcomes instituted by the Texas education commission board, and includes updated content on the major issues in today’s headlines to help students become informed voters and participants in Texas’s dynamic policymaking process.
