Summary In this book the author describes how the U.S. Government works. The role the national, state, and local governments play is explained. The national has three branches, the legislative, the judicial, and the executive. The executive branch includes the president of the United States and the president's cabinet. The president is the head of state and commander in chief of the military. The president signs into law bills passed by the legislature and signs treaties with other nations after they have been approved in Congress. The president represents the United States to the rest of the world. This book tells the history of the presidency including memorable events and special people. It also offers a well balance, two-sided debate concerning the issues that face the president today.
