Described are the Legislative body, composed of Senate and House of Representatives, the Executive branch, headed by the President with the Cabinet members, and the Judicial branch, headed by the Supreme Court of the United States, and extending to federal courts throughout the nation. New in this edition are facts about how a bill becomes a law, the various departments in the Executive branch, and more.
