These selected writings, edited by Ray Notgrass, accompany the Exploring Government textbook (please see related reviews for the Exploring Government textbook and the Quiz and Exam Pack). Texts and excerpts from the Bible, Supreme Court opinions, historic documents, essays, speeches and other writings were chosen to further the student’s understanding of specific points in the textbook. The selections are ordered to match their appearance in the Exploring Government text.
This is a nice supplement to the Exploring Government text. It enriches your understanding of the context and impact of the textbook. The various items were selected with the author’s viewpoint and agenda in mind. As a result, you'll find within its pages rhetoric that reflects a conservative, Christian, "hands-off government" viewpoint.
