We used Notgrass for American Gov't.

But my ds wanted more, so then we did a Political Science class and used mostly Uncle Eric books (Bluestocking Press).

I have Uncle Eric materials along with the Notgrass program- it's what I plan to use next year. Both look great for Econ and American Government.

We use a variety. They all go through 3 years of TeenPact, which is State Gov't., but obviously extends to Federal in a broader sense. :)
9th Grade:
Are You Liberal, Conservative, Confused? by Richard Maybury (Uncle Eric :) )
The English Constitution by Walter Bagehot
Essays from John Hopkins's Notions on Political Economy
Common Sense by Thomas Paine
The Rights of Man by Thomas Paine
Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith
The Federalist Papers by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay

10th grade:
Evaluating Books: What would Thomas Jefferson Think About This? by Richard Maybury
The Law by Frederic Bastiat
On Liberty, by John Stuart Mill
Graves of Academe by Richard Mitchell

11th Grade:

Autobiography of a Slander by Edna Lyall

12th Grade:
I think I'm going to have my rising Senior take this course (https://online.hillsdale.edu/course/con101/login) over the summer. I've heard it's really good, but very hard! At the very least, she'll be getting a greater understanding of the constitution. I should probably take it along with her. :)

Editing to add, the other Uncle Eric books we cover earlier, in 7th and 8th grade.
