GATEWAYS TO DEMOCRACY continues with a framework of “gateways” that helps you conceptualize participation and civic engagement--even democracy itself--with reference to how individuals access the political system. This approach helps you to better see the relevance of government in your life. GATEWAYS uniquely incorporates policy into a section at the end of each chapter to clearly show and help you understand the connection between public opinion, policy-making and how public policy applies to your life. This second edition, complete with 2012 election updates, outlines learning outcomes at the beginning of each chapter to guide your reading focus, promotes critical thinking with various questions throughout each chapter, and helps you check your comprehension with a new end of chapter study plan. Using Aplia, Cengage Learning’s online learning system, will help you come to class better prepared and perform better in the course. See available study tools at www.cengagebrain.com.
