GATEWAYS TO DEMOCRACY continues with its framework of gateways to help students conceptualize participation and civic engagement--even democracy itself--with reference to how individuals access the political system. This approach helps students better see the relevance of government in their lives. GATEWAYS uniquely incorporates policy into a section at the end of each chapter, complementing the way many instructors teach the course and helping students better understand the connection between public opinion, policy-making and how public policy applies to their lives. The second edition, complete with 2012 election updates, emphasizes critical thinking by clearly outlining learning outcomes and enhancing student learning with self-assessment Checkpoints and a clear chapter study plan.
