This shorter-format text brings students the content and outstanding new Associated Press features found in the bestselling The Challenge of Democracy, Ninth Edition. The Brief Edition maintains the same framework and motifs as the full-length text, its pedagogy linked to two main themes: the conflicting vales of freedom, order, and equality; and the majoritarianism versus pluralism debate. A focus on globalization and its implications helps students put American government in a broader context.
