What's new with this website

CQ Encyclopedia of American Government (EAG) provides answers to the full range of questions that students, government professionals, interested citizens, and other researchers have about the institutions of U.S. government. Based on the CQ Press ready-reference American Government A to Z series, EAG offers thousands of concise, up-to-date explanations of the who, how, and why of American democracy.

EAG reflects CQ Press's wealth of understanding and expertise in interpreting the American political system. Through its various discovery tools, users will find information not only about the institutions of government, but also the theories that underpin them, the personalities that have animated them, and the issues that vex them.

EAG is organized around five content categories

  • Presidency includes documents on the organization and powers of the executive branch, presidential policies, and current and past presidents.
  • Supreme Court includes documents on the Court's organization and powers, landmark cases, constitutional law, current and past justices.
  • Congress includes documents on Congress's organization and powers, the legislative process, policy, current and past members.
  • Elections includes documents on the U.S. electoral process, political parties and campaigns, voting rights and trends.
  • Constitution includes documents on the U.S. Constitution and the rights and issues it has shaped for over two centuries.

Supplementing the more than 2,000 entries, EAG offers multiple content types to inspire and support research and learning, including:

  • Q & A, key questions with concise answers and links to related questions.
  • Facts & Figures, graphic and tabular presentations of statistics and other information.
  • Images of both historical figures and recent events.
  • Primary source documents, including the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
  • Bibliographies for further research.
  • Annotated links to authoritative web resources.

EAG also offers a number of research tools, including the option to create a profile for saving favorite searches and documents and the popular CiteNow!(TM).

With information on every aspect and era of American government, from John Quincy Adams to Zoning, EAG is a foundational resource on American democracy.
