In recent years, there has been increasing concern that Americans are becoming more and more apathetic about government. The number of people who turn out to vote has declined. People are volunteering less, and being less active citizens of their communities and their government. Yet, the role of government in peoples' lives has increased significantly. Government is involved in our lives from birth to death: issuing birth and death certificates, Social Security numbers, free public education, loans for college, coordinating healthcare and gathering taxes, and providing Social Security and Medicare.

American Government: The Democratic Experiment explains the foundations of American Government and its impact on people's lives. In addition to the text, students are given access to KHQ, a user-friendly quizzing application available on the iTunes and Google Play store that gives students and instructors an opportunity to gauge their comprehension of concepts presented.
