Civil Liberties [electronic resource]: Safeguarding the Individual

Loading...
Examines the First, Fourth, and Sixth Constitutional Amendments to show how the Bill of Rights protects individual citizens from excessive or arbitrary government interference, yet, contrary to the belief of many Americans, does not grant unlimited rights. Case studies include the censorship of a high school newspaper, drug testing for extra-curricular activities in high schools, and media coverage of the Sam Sheppard trial.

Political Parties [electronic resource]: Mobilizing Agents

Loading...
Explains how political parties perform important functions that link the public to the institutions of American government. Parties create coalitions of citizens who share political goals, elect candidates to public office to achieve those goals, and organize the legislative and executive branches of government. Examples include the political advancement of Cindy Montañez, Mayor of the city of San Fernando; the 1993 mayorial race in New York City as a revelation of the differences between Democrats and Republican, and how Senator Jim Jefford's 1991 decision to change his allegiance shifted the balance of power in the Congress and directly influenced the investigation of Enron.
