Overview

For courses in American Government

Understand American politics from past to present
Revel™ American Government: Roots and Reform
helps students view the issues facing the United States today through a historical lens. By presenting coverage of the origins of American government in tandem with material on contemporary political structures and behaviors, authors Karen O’Connor and Larry Sabato help students see how what happened in the past can be used to understand what measures should be taken in the future. The 2018 Elections and Updates Edition offers new narrative coverage of the major issues from today’s headlines including the 2018 midterm elections, recent policy under the Trump administration, and the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

This digital package includes Revel California Government and Politics Today, 15th Edition, allowing instructors to easily integrate coverage of California government and politics into the American Government survey course. Focusing on California’s ethnic and cultural diversity as well as the global economy’s impact on California (and vice versa), author Mona Field explains California’s ever-changing political situation in the context of social and economic trends.

Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
