The powers and duties of each branch, how these have evolved over the countrys history, and how the system of checks and balances functions are all clearly described. Case studies, primary source documents, biographical sketches, easy-to-understand graphs and charts, and vivid full-color photos all bring the subject to life. And sources of further information, both in print and online, provide extended learning opportunities. Future titles in this series will focus on the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and other amendments, the Cabinet and federal agencies, and the roles of political parties, interest groups, and the media in American government.
