Críticas:


"'Engage, Think, Debate' should become the pedagogical theme of all American Government courses in the 21st century."--E. Perry Ballard, Daytona State College


"A comprehensive overview of American political processes that is engaging and informative. The authors continually challenge students to think critically about controversial issues and include relevant and thoughtful examples to reinforce learning."--Steven Nawara, Valdosta State University


"The writing style is terrific and accessible. Students like the way it is written and visual learners will appreciate the graphics and 'By the Numbers.' Given the content, writing, organization, and price, there is not a better text on the market."--John Shively, Longview Community College


"By the People is comprehensive, engaging, and sensitive to cultivating relevant connections between students and politics (which can be all too abstract at times)."--Jay Cerrato, Bronx Community College


"Throughout the text, the issues that are selected are important to students and they will be engaged with the alternating viewpoints that are summarized. From an instructor's perspective, I will use this to stimulate debate and discussion among students."--Michael Petersen, Utah State University


"This is a very well-organized, comprehensive text on American government and politics that really promotes good critical-thinking skills and discussion/writing."--Kimberly Casey, Northwest Missouri State University


"This is one of the most comprehensive texts on American government and politics on the market today. Two aspects that I truly love are the 'By the Numbers' and the 'What Do You Think' features. I think that the supplements make this book extremely user friendly for both instructors and students. I would pick it over its competitors any day!"--Nichole Boutte-Heiniluoma, Jarvis Christian College


"By the People's greatest strength is the emphasis on the connection between the events and theory it discusses and students' lives."--Mikhail Rybalko, Texas Tech University


"This is a book that goes beyond the traditional format of 'Describe a concept, give a historical antecedent, and move to the next concept.' It challenges students to consider the real world and how they fit into it."--Patrick Moore, Richland College


"I like the 'What Do You Think' features; I think that they could be used to start good conversations. In a large class they might be items that professors assign for recitation sections (or short essays) and in smaller classes they offer great ideas to debate further in class."--Zachary Baumann, The Pennsylvania State University
