9780618116263: Keeping The Republic Brief

Keeping the Republic, Brief, gives students tools for analysis and helps them develop the skills they need to understand the importance of citizenship, politics, and its actors.

A brief introduction guides students on how to read and use the text for the best possible success in the course and keeps them interested in the material by using examples common to their lives.

  • What's at Stake vignettes begin every chapter by introducing a current political situation and highlighting key players, their positions and political motivations, and the rules and context of the controversy. What's at Stake Revisited recaps the controversy at the end of the chapter.
  • Who, What, How section summaries provide an opportunity for students to step back and review the major points and themes covered.
  • Consider the Source boxes provide the tools students need to develop the critical-thinking skills for analyzing the different sources of information they encounter.
  • Points of Access boxes suggest ways students can participate in the political process, including joining an interest group and participating in a demonstration.
  • The Keeping the Republic web site includes chapter walkthroughs, ACE self-tests, Internet links organized by chapter, policy coverage from Public Agenda Online, and interactive exercises.

Review:

The emphasis on citizenship and participation is outstanding. Whether used to differentiate a citizen from a subject or furthering an understanding of the Dred Scott decision, it is a theme that "clicks" with the students. And, importantly, it permits a comparative approach to the rights of people in other countries. -- Review
