Summary
    The American Political Narrative is a succinct yet poignant narrative about the development of the American political system and what is needed to maintain it. The material helps students to identify their own place in that narrative and to recognize that they each play a vital role.

    The book focuses on core aspects of America's history, fundamental beliefs, and institutions. Students explore the nation's founding in chapters on the American Revolution, Federalism, and the Constitution. They become familiar with the structure and functions of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Presidency.

    The American Political Narrative also includes chapters on topics such as civil liberties, civil rights, interest groups, social movements, political parties, domestic and foreign policy, and governance. Students gain a deeper understanding of familiar topics and also explore subjects that may seem tangential, but that are integral parts of a complex political system. The American Political Narrative will work well in any introductory course in American government, politics, or social studies.
