Video title: The American Political Landscape

Use this American Government by the People video entitled The American Political Landscape to understand how government works and to study how the character of a political society, its social and economic divisions, its traditions, and its sectional and local identifications, are important to understanding of government. Learn how as a nation of immigrants, Americans are more diverse than the citizens of most other nations. Discover how diversity in race and ethnicity are reflected in different family structures and religions. The nation's citizens also differ in wealth and income, occupation, social class, age, and education. Divisions by gender and sexual orientation have recently become more important. This diversity is often significant in our politics, though most divisions cut across demographic categories, rather than reinforcing them. 

Learn about The American Political Landscape.
