Southern Maine Library District, March 7, 2013

"A crucial addition to secondary school libraries and government studies classes, the series uses recent and historical events to engage the young reader. While it is predictable that the Constitution is featured along with the three branches of government, it is rare to find a separate title devoted to U.S. security agencies . . ."
