About The Author

Scott Franklin Abernathy

Scott Franklin Abernathy

Dr. Scott F. Abernathy is a Texas native who grew up in Fort Worth. He worked for three months with Mother Theresa's Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India, while an undergraduate at Dartmouth College. Scott served as an on-the-street mentor for homeless teens in Boston, MA, with The Bridge, a non-profit multi-service youth organization, after graduation, aiming to do service work closer to home. Dr. Abernathy then earned a master's degree in curriculum and instruction and went on to teach fourth and seventh grade in Wisconsin public schools.

He earned an M.P.A. in domestic policy and then a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University in order to learn more about the fundamental processes that drove the educational outcomes he was seeking to improve.

Dr. Abernathy is now an associate professor of Political Science at the University of Minnesota and a University Distinguished Teaching Professor. He is also the author of two books published by the University of Michigan Press: School Choice and the Future of American Democracy and No Child Left Behind and the Public Schools.

Though Scott claims that becoming a "streetworker" was the most life-changing job he's ever had, this textbook and the opportunity to educate college gstudents by writing—rather than a subway stop, a squat, or a classroom—is pretty awesome as well.

Politics involves people, from several backgrounds, struggling to make their voices heard. Real people, telling their stories, reflect our choices, ideals, and collective experiences as a nation. In American Government: Stories of a Nation, 2nd Edition, (PDF), author Scott Abernathy tunes in to these voices, reflecting how our diverse ideas shape the way we participate and behave, the laws we live by, and the challenges we meet. Every chapter features real stories showing how the American political system is the product of strategies, calculations, and miscalculations of innumerable individuals.

Pupils learn the nuts and bolts of political science through these interesting stories. Learning concepts in context is a tested learning technique that works to assist ideas stick. The key concepts are notable because they are tied to real politics, where students see political choices and political action shaping how institutions advance or impede the contentment of fundamental ideas. Not only will all students see themselves mirrored in the pages, but they will come to comprehend that they, too, are strategic players in American politics, with voices that matter.
