The first elections reference specifically created to support students and teachers in U.S. government courses Student&BAD:rsquo;s Guide to Elections is an informative and engaging reference tool for young researchers seeking information on voting, the electoral process, and the history of U.S. elections. It offers accessible access to the key topics in high school U.S. government and U.S. history curricula. A comprehensive, single-volume resource, it features essays, encyclopedic entries, and primary source documents, to help students understand the history and significance of the U.S. electoral process. The user-friendly design includes boxed features, time lines, photos, maps, charts, tables, and political cartoons. Student's Guide to Elections is the first title in a brand new Student's Guide series from CQ Press. Uniquely, the Student's Guide series of books is written so that students need no prior knowledge to understand the essays, encyclopedia entries, or primary sources in these resources. With the 2008 presidential election looming in November, this volume will prove to be an indispensable resource for high school and public libraries, and a teaching resource for courses on U.S. government and political system.
