Morone/Kersh, By the People Brief, 5e
In a storytelling approach that weaves contemporary examples together with historical context, By the People: Debating American Government, Brief Fifth Edition explores the themes and ideas that drive the great debates in American government and politics. It introduces students to big questions like 'Who governs?' 'How does our system of government work?' 'What does government do?' and 'Who are we?' By challenging students with these questions, the text gets them to engage with, think about, and debate the merits of U.S. government and politics.
