In these politically charged times, interest in the political process is peaking. Enormous decisions must be made at a time when the world seems to be teetering on the edge of chaos.The Handy Politics Answer Book dares to ask the tough questions (not like the ones reporters lob at incumbents) and answers every one thoroughly and clearly (without the usual political side-stepping and spin tactics). Fifteen chapters explore politics from our founding fathers to current trends, from our branches of government to how they work together (or don't), from noteworthy people and officials to major events. This is just the book wannabe politicians (and everyone else) can consult to obtain a solid understanding on such things as "Why were Medicare and Medicaid created?" "What are civil liberties?" "What is due process of law?" "What is the United Nations?" Then there are the questions you always wanted to know, like, "What is considered the dirtiest presidential campaign on record?" And, "If the president has a job description, what is it?" Great questions for parties, but everyone knows you're not supposed to talk politics at social gatherings. That's why this book exists.
