Description : For undergraduate courses in American Government. This is the book that gets students to participate. Living Democracy gets students to participate in learning, in the classroom, and in change. The book's young and energetic author team cares deeply about student learning and student engagement. Lead author Dan Shea founded the Center for Political Participation and his experiences working with students in the classroom and in the center inspired him to team up with co-authors Joanne Connor Green (Texas Christian University) and Christopher E. Smith (Michigan State) to write an American Government text that truly inspires students and helps them experience the impact of government in their daily lives. Everything about the book-the writing, design, examples, photos, activities, and every page of the text-is designed to get students to participate in their class and in American politics. In a recent survey of American Government courses, 80% of instructors named student apathy-about the course material, about politics, about the prospect that government can do anything to enrich their lives-as the number one problem in their course. Written with the belief that introductory courses in American Government are critically important for our students-as well as for the long-term stability of the democratic process-Living Democracy is designed to help students draw connections between topics and to find a role for themselves in politics and government. The text's innovative approach to American government presents the dynamic nature of our country's democratic process more accurately than any other book currently on the market, while offering all of the material found in a comprehensive, traditionally organized government text within an active framework.

Description : Three out of five Americans, both Republicans and Democrats, feelour country is headed in the wrong direction. America is at theedge, a critical place at which we can either renew and revitalizeor give in and lose that most precious Americanideal—democracy—and along with it the freedom,fairness, and opportunities it assures. Democracy’sEdge is a rousing battle cry that we can—andmust—act now. From Jefferson to Eisenhower, presidentsfrom both parties have warned us of the danger of letting a closed,narrow group of business and government officials concentrate powerover our lives. Yet today, a small and unrepresentative group ofpeople is making vital decisions for all of us. But this crisis is only a symptom, Lappé argues. It’sa symptom of thin democracy, something done to us orfor us, not by or with us. Such democracy isalways at risk of being stolen by private interests or extremistgroups, left and right. But there is a solution. Theanswer, says Lappé, is Living Democracy, a powerful yet ofteninvisible citizens’ revolution surging in communities acrossAmerica. It’s not random, disjointed activism but theemergence of a new historical stage of democracy in which Americansrealize that democracy isn’t something we have butsomething we do. Either we live it or lose it, saysLappé.

Description : Everything about this dynamic book–from its engaging writing and examples, to its bold graphics and photos, to its innovative learning pedagogy and interactive assessment–is designed to get students to participate: in their learning, in the classroom, and in all aspects of American politics. American Government instructors overwhelmingly cite student apathy as the single biggest problem in their course; students are simply not engaged in the material and do not believe that the government can affect and enrich their lives. Lead author Dan Shea, founder of the Center for Political Participation, along with co-authors Joanne Connor Green and Christopher E. Smith teamed up to write an American Government text that helps students experience the impact of government in their daily lives and inspires them to work to affect that government in return. Written with the belief that the American Government course is critically important for our students–as well as for the long-term stability of the democratic process–Living Democracy helps students draw connections between course topics and current events and find a role for themselves in politics and government. The text’s innovative approach to American government presents the dynamic nature of our country's democratic process more accurately than any other book currently on the market, while offering all of the material found in a comprehensive, traditionally organized government text within an active framework. The Texas edition includes the exact same coverage as the comprehensive version but with additional chapters on Texas politics. Now in its second edition, this attention-getting text is building on its message of participation: improvements to its innovative pedagogical system with even more assessment opportunities help students participate more fully in their own learning process, while new Student Profiles of politically active young people from around the world continue to promote students’ political participation. New coverage highlights the events surrounding the 2008 Election including the massive growth in voter participation.
