THE HANDY AMERICAN GOVERNMENT ANSWER BOOK

How Washington, Politics, and Elections Work

By Gina Misiroglu. Useful both as a reference and as a primer on how modern America is managed and governed, this reference is written in an easily accessible Q&A format to answer virtually any question about the operation of the U.S. government. Featuring nearly 800 questions, the book examines the historic development of the government, the functions of each branch, and the systems, people, and policies that compose American democracy, providing well-reasoned answers to queries such as "What can Americans do to influence their government?", "Why has trust in the government declined?", "What is electoral realignment?", "Who pays for the campaigns of candidates?", and "How are shifting demographics related to the electorate?"
