Additional Book Details

American government is not just one story—it’s many stories. Our stories. And they are still being told.



In the Second Edition of American Government: Stories of a Nation, Brief Edition, author Scott Abernathy tunes in to the voices of America’s people, showing how diverse ideas throughout our nation’s history have shaped our political institutions, our identities, the way we participate and behave, the laws we live by, and the challenges we face. His storytelling approach brings the core concepts of government to life, making them meaningful and memorable, and allows all students to see themselves reflected in the pages.



Carefully condensed from the full version by Scott Abernathy, American Government, Brief Edition, gives your students all the information they need—and the stories they relate to—in a more concise, value-oriented package.
