Unformatted text preview: UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT e Book How to use this U.S. Government eBook Many courses, like U.S. History, lend themselves to traditional textbooks that start at the beginning and continue to the end. This is called a linear book. A study of the U.S. government does not have a beginning or an end. Our Government is a complex and interrelated whole consisting of many parts. The study of each part requires knowledge of how that part relates to the whole. We have designed this eBook with that in mind. When you begin to read the first article you will see words highlighted in blue and underlined ; these words are links to other articles. This is called hypertext, and it allows you, the reader, to make your own decisions about what to read and in what order to read it to allow you to gain the highest possible comprehension of the material. Please note that the Forward and Back arrows are present as you navigate from topic to topic. Therefore, if you use a hypertext link to another article to refresh your memory, and then want to continue reading where you left off, you can click on the Back arrow, and it will return you to the page from which you came. You may choose to download and save this eBook to your own computer to reduce the amount of time that you need to be connected to the Internet. If you read the eBook when you are not connected to the Internet, most of the hypertext links will still be available to you (those that link within the book). Some of the links, however, go directly to sites on the Internet, and you will need to be “on-line” for such links to be active. Of course, you may also print the entire eBook and read it as a traditional book. As you read more and more articles (and follow links to concepts with which you are not familiar) the whole interrelated nature of our government will emerge for you, and your understanding will be deeper than if you had read a traditional text cover to cover. Following the links will allow you to peek into future units and return to past units when the concept has been forgotten. As you near the end of the class, most of the highlighted words will already be familiar, and the reading will go faster. In addition, you will have already read many of the articles, and reviewing them will be enough to prepare for the quiz or test. We hope you make good use of this helpful feature and are successful in learning about our fascinating government. Table of Contents Unit 1 – Political Heritage 1. The Greeks and the Romans 2.
