Specifically written to engage high school students, Student's Guide to the Presidency presents a comprehensive overview of the history and ongoing evolution of the American executive branch. This single-volume resource does not require any prior knowledge of the presidency and covers topics that meet national high school curriculum standards. The third installment of the Student's Guide to the U.S Government series is also appropriate for introductory American government college classes. Teachers and students alike will want to use this resource in preparation for exams and research papers. A crisp layout unites the text with illuminating photos, maps, charts, tables, timelines, and humorous political cartoons to provide a clear picture of the presidency.
