    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

    Many great people and many great times throughout the history of the world have been remembered through speeches. It's easy to think of some of these in the modern times – Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream," Richard Nixon's speech to astronauts on the moon, John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, and Winston Churchill's "Their Finest Hour," for example. Perhaps not so easy to name are some of those speeches that have held their place in time throughout the centuries – such speeches as Julius Caesar's "On the Treatment of the Conspirators," Socrates on his condemnation and death, Danton's "To Dare Again, Ever to Dare!" and Martin Luther before the Diet of Worms. Divided into seven parts, the 292 speeches in this book are drawn from: Earlier Times (Ancient Greece and Rome, Great Britain and Ireland, the early United States, Canada, South America, South Africa, India, and China), Recent Times (US domestic affairs, world affairs and WWII, and US affairs and WWII), Modern Times (US government, international affairs, and the United Nations), Informal Speeches (of the last two centuries), Important Speeches of the Sixties, Speeches by Black Americans, and Speeches from the period 1974 – 1997. From Pericles and Isocrates to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Ronald Reagan, and the Earl of Spencer, these speeches are a great resource for history, inspiration, quotations, and much more. Speeches are indexed by topic, by nationality, and by speaker for ease of reference. ~ Zach

    Think of this as a patriotic trainer. Oh, you could give it to your child to read on his own, but the real value of this book would be in its use as a discussion tool for your entire family. Here are 52 short readings, typically less than 4 pages each, that highlight the fundamentals of the US government, including the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. The readings include a mixture of excerpts, song lyrics, quotes from Founders, poems, and comments from author Steve Brezenski. Those ever important topics of civics, responsibility, patriotism, governmental power, freedom, and citizenship (to name but a few) are introduced with an eye towards developing a greater understanding of our individual and corporate responsibilities. 147 pgs, pb. – Zach
