Previously known as Electronic Encyclopedia of American Government this completely updated reference resource 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 new editions of the CQ Press American Government A to Z series, CQ Press Encyclopedia of American Government (EAG) offers thousands of concise, up-to-date explanations of the who, how, and why of American democracy.

Organized around the three branches of the federal government as well as U.S. elections, EAG reflects CQ Press's wealth of understanding and expertise in interpreting the American political system. Supplementing the more than 2,000 encyclopedic and biographical entries, EAG offers multiple content types to inspire and support research, 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; and annotated links to authoritative web resources. EAG users find information not only about the institutions of government, but also the theories that underpin them, the personalities that animate them, and the issues that vex them.

In addition to a new look and updated content, EAG now offers a number of research tools common to other CQ Press Online Reference modules, including the option to create a profile for saving favorite searches and documents and the popular CiteNow!™. The updated EAG also offers enhanced search and browse functionality and is now indexed in All CQ Press Online Reference Search, enabling quick access to relevant EAG documents across CQ Press Online Reference .
