Texts that help students to think critically about who gets what and how 

“In Keeping the Republic, Barbour and Wright present an extremely clear and accessible text for any introductory course on American politics. For the many students who come into the classroom with little preexisting knowledge about how the American political process works or what their place in it is, the text provides them with the core information they need as students and as citizens.”   —Joel Kersting, Washington & Jefferson College

Keeping the Republic: Power and Citizenship in American Politics draws students into the study of American politics, showing them how to think critically about “who gets what, and how” while exploring the twin themes of power and citizenship. Throughout the text and its features, the authors show students how to effectively apply the critical thinking skills they develop to the political information they encounter every day.
