This anthology is intended to fill a conspicuous void in many introductory American Government courses—a lack of focus on primary-source materials. While most instructors have little trouble teaching the workings of government, few are able to instill in their students an appreciation for the core theorists and theories of government. By introducing students to vital primary sources, and supplementing these with insightful secondary readings, this volume encourages students to think critically about key components of the American political system. Organized thematically, the reading selections explore the foundations of the American political system, the three branches of American government, and the psychological nature of political behavior.
