    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

    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

    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
