American Democracy in Context (PDF/AZW3) offers a combined historical and comparative approach to inspire students to better understand, care, and become active citizens. Bestselling authors Shivley, Maltese, and Pika explain the distinctive features of how Americans practice democracy—how they vote, interpret election results into a representation of interests, make policy decisions, enforce laws, and maintain justice—and how those practices clash from other democracies in the world. The focus is always on the American political system, but the search for understanding needs college students to examine how the American system has developed over time (historical context) and how it compares with alike practices in other democracies (comparative context). This combined approach encourages students to understand why politics is relevant to their daily lives and how they can affect changes to make their lives better.
