about this item

When NEWSWEEK recently asked 1,000 U.S. citizens to take America's official citizenship test, 29 percent couldn't name the vice president. Seventy-three percent couldn't correctly say why we fought the Cold War. Forty-four percent were unable to define the Bill of Rights. And 6 percent couldn't even circle Independence Day on a calendar.We know you'd fare much better -- but does anyone really understand the difference between a primary and a caucus? Is it really illegal to rip a dollar bill in half? What the heck is the Electoral College? And what's the deal with Guam -- don't we, like, own them or something?STUFF EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD KNOW answers all of these questions and many more. This handsome gift book features tons of illuminating QAs, helpful how-tos, and insightful charts. It's a perfect gift for Americans of all ages
