The First Edition of Keeping the Republic acknowledged that many students view politics irrelevant or unrelated to their lives. The Second Edition maintains this perspective and aims to capture the attention of reluctant readers by focusing on the guiding themes of power and citizenship, emphasising that political participation can benefit groups who participate in the process. Throughout the text, students are challenged to imagine what the political scene would look like if the rules were different, if historical events had alternate conclusions, or what might happen if elements of other countries' political systems were incorporated into the US's. Highlights of this second edition include: - New! A streamlined text and modified organisation contains new examples, photos, and information. Chapter 11 has been incorporated into a more complete Chapter 4, Federalism and the U.S. Constitution - New! The Keeping the Republic feature replaces Points of Access and offers concrete ways for students to meet civic responsibilities and encourages them to develop a better understanding of their roles in American politics - New! Who Are We features encourage students to examine the way demographic trends relate to government and policy - New! Politics in Focus offer sidebars covering issues that pertain to chapter topics and focus on a specific point within the topic - New! Updated diversity coverage highlights issues related to gender, race, and ethnicity - New! Global perspective call-outs make comparisons to alternative forms of government from around the world and help students incorporate an international viewpoint into their perception of politics at home

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
