The highly anticipated conservative textbook regarding government and the American political system is finally here. Based upon the home school high school curriculum used by Douglas V. Gibbs, this blockbuster book is designed to introduce students, and inquisitive Americans, to the study of government and the intricacies of politics based on the United States Constitution and historical data regarding all systems of governance. The thematic approach used by Mr. Gibbs discusses the foundations of American Liberty and the original principles of our natural rights, the rudimentary formation of the American System, the importance of virtue and the Judeo-Christian building blocks that support the American System, the development of the concept of the rule of law and its influence on the American System, the key contributions necessary to “keep the republic”, the message of the Preamble, a dissection of the different parts of American Government and a comparison of our system of liberty to other systems currently in place around the globe (as well as past systems), a breakdown of the Bill of Rights (as well as other amendments), an explanation of the judicial system (past and present) and its journey to its current activist form, a breakdown of our laissez faire economy and how influences by socialism have compromised our free market system, the importance of an informed society, the influences of the antebellum moralists, the lasting impact of slavery, the damage caused (and still lingering) from the Progressive Era, understanding liberty and equality, the excesses of democracy, and what the future of America is looking like based on current trends. This book serves as a vessel for the reader’s journey through an exploration of key concepts regarding government in general, and the system we enjoy in the United States thanks to documents like the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Each chapter explores concepts and terms both familiar and unfamiliar to the Founding Fathers, past political personas, and today’s modern cast of characters and events. Government, politics, power, and authority are all examined in a comprehensible manner, leading the reader from a position of being a political novice to a well-informed citizen. Douglas V. Gibbs identifies where America has been, where we are, and where we are going, through a well coordinated examination of all political variables past, present, and those likely to influence our future. This book is comprehensive, clear, and detailed, and serves as a powerful examination of all things American when it comes to government studies and the examination of political systems.
