Keeping the Republic: Power and Citizenship in American Politics

Hardback
The book gets students to consider how and why institutions and rules determine who wins and who loses in American politics and to be sceptical of received wisdom. Every element of the text is crafted to provide the tools students need to be thoughtful, savvy consumers of political information and to teach them to think more deeply about what they see, read, and hear. Going even further in this new edition, the authors have partnered with award-winning information designer and teacher Mike Wirth to create a series of stunning, data-rich infographics that appear throughout the text, presenting information in new, more revealing ways. Combining critical thinking skills, pedagogically rich visuals, and the seminal work in the field of American politics, this trusted text is ideal for students who want to take an active part in their communities and government-to play their part in keeping the republic.
