Keeping the Republic, 9th Edition(PDF) provides students the power to examine the narrative of what′s going on in American politics, differentiate fact from fiction and balance from bias, and affect the message through informed citizenship.

Keeping the Republic 9e draws learners into the study of American politics, showing them how to think analytically about “who gets what, and how” while discovering the twin themes of power and citizenship. Students are pushed to deliberate how and why institutions and rules determine who loses and who wins in American politics, and to be savvy consumers of political information.

The comprehensively updated 9th Edition considers how a key component of power is who controls the information, how it is collected into narratives, and whether we come to identify fact from fiction. Citizens now have unparalleled access to power – the ability to make and share their own narratives – while at the same time being even more susceptible to those trying to shape their views. The current political landscape gives us new ways to retain the republic, and some advanced ways to lose it.

All through the text and its features, authors Gerald Wright and Christine Barbour show students how to effectively implement the critical thinking skills they develop to the political information they face every day. Students are challenged to review prevailing narratives and effectively employ the political power of the information age for themselves.
