Cathy Duffy's Summary:
Basic American Government is one of the books I would put on the “must-read” list. Its combination of theory and practical application draws students into the age-old conversation about the proper structure of government and the challenge of balancing the government’s power with freedom for its citizens. The new course materials now make it much more usable for students more practical for parents and teachers to administer.
