With Robert J. Spitzer


Politics is relevant.

The best book for engaging students in American politics is also the most effective for helping students study and learn. We the People emphasizes the ways that government and politics matter and the ways that people can get involved in politics and influence government.

Based on the market-leading full-length text, We the People, Essentials Edition, offers authoritative treatment of the core topics in American politics. Key features from the full edition—such as the “What Government Does and Why It Matters” chapter introductions and “Get Involved” boxes—offer a proven way to highlight relevance and participation within a more streamlined pedagogical program. In the Essentials Eighth Edition an innovative new design and expanded review materials help students engage and succeed in the course.
