The updated 4th edition of GATEWAYS TO DEMOCRACY meets the College Board’s 2018–2019 course redesign emphasizing college-level critical thinking skills and analysis of political concepts and ideas, primary sources and foundational documents, which are drivers for success in the AP® U.S. Government and Politics course and exam. The text introduces the American political system to students, pointing out in each chapter the "gateways" that facilitate, or at times block, participation. In emphasizing how the political system works, and how individuals and groups have opened gates to influence public policy, the text helps students see the relevance of government in their lives. The updated fourth edition provides coverage of the 2016 election, as well as enhanced discussion of diversity and participation that reflects the changing demographic infrastructure in America today.
