Publisher's Description

Learn how the United States government is structured and compare it to the governments of other countries.

Even before the first glorious ring of the Liberty Bell, America was a land of freedom and promise. The Cornerstones of Freedom series explores what inspires people from all over the world to start life anew here, endure the economic and social upheavals, and defend the land and rights that are unique to the United States of America. There are many nations in the world, and each one has been shaped by a unique history and culture. As a result, these different countries have all developed their own individual forms of government. Readers will learn how governments interact with each other and what happens when a nation's people decide to fight back against unfair leadership.
