In a storytelling approach that weaves contemporary examples together with historical context, By the People: Debating American Government, explores the themes and ideas that drive the great debates in American government and politics. It introduces students to big questions like Who governs?How does our system of government work? What does government do? and Who are we? By challenging students with these questions, the text gets them to think about, engage with, and debate the merits of U.S. government and politics.
