    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

    The founding fathers considered Congress to be the most important of the three branches, and yet Americans are frequently disillusioned with this branch and know little of how it functions. This book uses educational, hands-on activities to help students understand how congress works and why government is important. The focus is on stories, personalities and major milestones in congressional history. The 9 chapters hone in on themes that have historically challenged congress, including the abolition of slavery, voting rights, investigating government misconduct, and private institutions. Students will complete such varied activities as designing money, building a capitol dome, studying their own congressional district, writing a letter to their congressman, drafting a petition, and tracking a bill through congress. Includes an afterword, notes, websites for further research, a glossary, bibliography and index. Great for your political science studies! 11” x 8 ½”, 128 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    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
