    Like the other terrific books in the Painless series, this one endeavors to make learning easier and more enjoyable, without skipping out on any of the "meat." We begin with a description of government in general and a comparative look at the founding father's view of democracy versus how it actually operates in America today. We then learn about the Constitution and how it forms the basis for our government, civil liberties and civil rights, the legislative, executive and judicial branches of the federal government, our election system, political parties, and much more. The book also includes discussion questions and quizzes, to use either as self-evaluation, or for more formal assessment. Easy to use, and enjoyable to read, this would make an excellent supplement to an American history program, or a great introductory-level read before starting a heavier-weight government course in high school. Answer key included. - Jess

    Although this book seems at least as comprehensive as an American Government textbook (if not more!), it certainly has a different flavor. Written for anyone who wants to brush up on the American Government or maybe just learn about a few selected aspects, it approaches the topic in a personable, borderline amusing, easy-to-read-and-comprehend style characteristic of the "Everything" series. The text is medium font and a single column, divided into short sections and interspersed with interesting fact boxes, further separating it from the familiar small-print double column textbook. All that said, it doesn't skimp on the scope of coverage! There are twenty-two chapters, each further divided into six or more sub-topics. The titles of the chapters are The Birth of a Nation, The Constitution, the Bill of Rights, The House of Representatives, The Senate, Inside Congress, Making a Law, The Presidency, Powers of the President, The Vice Presidency, Cabinet and Staff, The Rest of the Federal Bureaucracy, The Federal Judiciary, The Supreme Court, the Federal Budget, Political Parties, Interest Groups, The Media, Presidential Primaries and Elections, State Government, Local Government, and Getting Involved. As you might guess, throughout these chapters readers will learn - as shown in the title - nearly EVERYTHING about the American Government. In fact, the thoroughness and interest level of the text coupled with the appealing format suggests that students may retain much more than they might otherwise. The downside, of course, is that there are no quizzes or tests as there would be in a more standard textbook, but this could easily be remedied with just a little effort from the teacher, if desired. Two appendices include copies of The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States, and a timeline of relevant events. 305 pgs. - Melissa

    Republic or Democracy? What is the foundation of America? Does it really matter? If you follow any current media outlets, you quickly notice that America is described with either of these terms or sometimes these terms are used interchangeably. But do they mean the same thing? With an overview of defining terms while revisiting the writings of American founders, this book presents an understandable interpretation of the purpose and benefit of a republican form of government. Intermingled are quotations from our founding fathers, and an extensive look at the writings of John Adams. This is a perfect resource to introduce high schoolers and parents to the ancient ideas and principles behind the republican form of government. Learn why the founders of the United States used their unique opportunity to choose a republic form of government for themselves and their prosperity. 110 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
