Get the lowdown on it what means to be a U.S. citizen!

Basher’s Civics is your perfect primer ahead of the 59th presidential election! With his unique illustrations and humorous first-person text, Basher gives key political concepts such as Bill of Rights, Impeachment, Checks and Balances, and Supreme Court a face, voice, and personality.

In chapter 1, meet the Founding Principles, including Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. In chapter 2, say hi to Legislative Branch, such as Congress, House of Representatives, and Senate. You'll find Executive Branch in chapter 3, home to President, Cabinet, and Governors. In chapter 4, meet Judicial Branch, including Supreme Court and Trial by Jury. Last, and by no means least, find out what it means to be a citizen in chapter 5—here you will learn all about Immigration, Universal Suffrage, Jury Duty, and how YOU can make changes to society.
