Summary

Summary

In these politically charged times, interest in the political process is peaking. The Handy Politics Answer Book serves up 700 pages and 1,200 questions and answers for the common man, woman, or child on the basic nuts and bolts of our government and political history. Interesting, enlightening, and, most importantly, empowering, Handy Politic's fifteen chapters explore politics from our founding fathers to current trends, from our branches of government to how they work together (or don't), from noteworthy people and officials to major events.
