Carefully condensed by authors Christine Barbour and Gerald C. Wright―no cut-and-paste version here―Keeping the Republic: Power and Citizenship in American Politics, 5th Brief Edition gives your students all the continuity and crucial content of the full version, in a more concise, value-oriented package. And now, your students benefit from a full-color interior design. Photos jump off the page and colorful charts, tables, and maps enhance students′ data literacy. This up-to-date revision pulls in thoughtful discussion of the second half of the Obama administration and the 2012 election results.

Repeatedly praised for engaging students to think critically about "who gets what and how," the authors show them how institutions and rules determine who wins and who loses in the political arena. The authors carefully craft each section and feature to develop students′ analytic capabilities, to build confidence in students who want to take an active part in their communities.

About the Author:

Christine Barbour teaches in the Political Science Department and the Hutton Honors College at Indiana University, where she has become increasingly interested in how teachers of large classes can maximize what their students learn. She is working with online course designers to create an online version of her Intro to American Politics class. At Indiana, Professor Barbour has been a Lilly Fellow, working on a project to increase student retention in large introductory courses, and a member of the Freshman Learning Project, a university-wide effort to improve the first-year undergraduate experience. She has served on the New York Times College Advisory Board, working with other educators to develop ways to integrate newspaper reading into the undergraduate curriculum. She has won several teaching honors, but the two awarded by her students mean the most to her: the Indiana University Student Alumni Association Award for Outstanding Faculty and the Indiana University Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists Brown Derby Award. When not teaching or writing textbooks, Professor Barbour enjoys playing with her dogs, traveling with her coauthor, and writing about food. She is the food editor for Bloom Magazine of Bloomington and is a coauthor of Indiana Cooks!(2005) and Home Grown Indiana (2008). She also makes jewelry from precious metals and rough gemstones and if she ever retires, she will open a jewelry shop in a renovated air-stream on the beach in Apalachicola, Florida, where she plans to write another cookbook and a book about the local politics, development, and fishing industry.
