Ebook

The American Government eBook is based on the premise that the individual is a personal creation of God and that government is man's agent for the protection of God's gifts. The freedoms we possess are not the cause but the consequences of our God-given liberties. All of its agents and procedures are designed to protect the integrity, dignity, and freedom of the human spirit. Forms of government such as dictatorship will be examined. The development of the American constitutional system and the checks and balances of authority will be covered. There will also be a special section devoted to American's military role in the world conflicts and in this time of terrorism.
