An excellent short course overview of the American government covering all three branches and different section of society that affect it. As a retired social studies teacher, I like the short quizzes at the end of each section. I feel that it would be an excellent study guide for legal immigrants who need to take the citizenship test.

Many of the editions by this group of authors are actually guides to books rather than the works.

If the author of the SparkNotes is known, they should be the first author. Please leave these SparkNotes Editors as the second author and the author of the original work as the last author. Do not combine with the original work. Do not put the author of the ORIGINAL work first.
