What Is government anyway? -- What does the government look like? -- How does the government work in my community? -- How do you run for a political office? -- How does voting work? -- What does the President do? -- What happens in Congress? -- What Is the Supreme Court? -- Who else works in the government? -- What can I do?
"Now more than ever, it's so important for everyone to understand our government: where it came from, how it works, and how we can bring about change. And, after all, in the words of author and government teacher Jeff Foster, "If you don't participate, you can't complain." This book is a comprehensive and entertaining guide that answers questions like: What is the Constitution? What are the branches of the government? What is the Electoral College? What are the political parties? What are the different responsibilities of the city, state, and federal governments? Plus, discover the complete backstory on some of our government's most important moments, like why we wrote the Declaration of Independence, and how people since then have worked with -- and protested against -- the government to improve the lives of all Americans"-- Provided by publisher.
