Publisher's Summary

American democracy can be...messy, sometimes. With all the voices and commentaries around us, making sense of the American democratic tradition may seem overwhelming.

This collection of books will help. With these Quick and Dirty Guides, you will be that much closer to sifting through the noise being an informed citizen. They are non-partisan and honest (if a bit cynical): just the kind of balanced information you're looking for.

This collection includes Volumes 1-4 of the The Quick and Dirty Guide to Our Messy Democracy:

1. The Quick and Dirty Guide to Primaries, Caucuses and Political Conventions:

The brawl for the nomination absorbs an incredible amount of media attention, but so much of what is produced is marred by partisanship that it is no wonder that so few Americans fully understand the nomination process.

Because of these misunderstandings the Quick and Dirty Guide Team is proud to present our guide to America's messy primary elections! This book will walk you through the "whys" and the "hows" of our candidate selection process. This includes answers to questions like, "Why does Iowa get to go first?", "How does a caucus work?", and "What's so super about superdelegates and why do just Democrats have them?"

2. The Quick and Dirty Guide to Electing the President:

So you've managed to win your party's primary election and been nominated to be the most powerful person on Earth! Congratulations, but let's talk about what comes next. The road to becoming the president of the United States is complicated and our Founding Fathers liked things that way. They probably didn't count on it becoming such a long process, however!

This process, which once focused on "wise electors" who were expected to act in the best interests of our nation, is now crowded with screaming talking heads on cable news, to say nothing of memes on Facebook!
