Summary
    Featuring a unique storytelling approach, A Trek through American and Texas Government follows a fictional character named Champ Cove as he visits various government agencies and affiliated organizations in Texas and the United States. Through the eyes of Champ, students learn foundational information about the role and operation of state and federal government in an engaging way.

    Section I covers American governing foundations, political geography, political culture, the impact of demographic shifts on government, our founding governing documents, federalism, and the history of politics in American and Texan experiences. In Section II, students learn about ways to influence the political process, elections from the perspective of voters and candidates, interest groups, and political parties. Section III pro¬vides insight on the various government agencies found in the country at the local, state, national, and international levels, as well as how they might interact with one another. The final section discusses domestic policy, foreign policy, civil liberties, government fiscal policy, and political symbols.

    Highly educational and an entertaining read, A Trek through American and Texas Government is ideal for introductory courses in government.

    Floyd Holder holds a M.P.A. from Texas State University and M.A. in political science and M.S. in geography from Texas Tech University. He is an assistant professor in the Social Sciences Department at Western Texas College, where he teaches courses in geography and government.
