Description Keeping the Republic de Christine Barbour:

"Keeping the Republic" now with a free supplement analyzing the midterm elections! Coming in July, this valuable supplement will provide an insider's guide to the 2010 midterm elections. "Keeping the Republic, 3rd Brief Edition": Too often, brief texts sacrifice the flavor of the full edition with an outside author condensing material on the altar of fewer pages. Once examples are cut, what's left is a drabber book heavy on concepts and devoid of color. This brief is different. Authors Christine Barbour and Gerald Wright have kept the same strong, cohesive narrative and focus on core concepts that form the basis of 'Keeping the Republic' - and do the streamlining and writing themselves. The themes of power and citizenship so crucial to the full text are found here in abundance, along with an array of engaging stories and cases to keep students reading. Reflecting changes through the 2008 elections, thorough and extensive updating and analysis of new scholarship are evident in every chapter. Key features include 'What's at Stake?' chapter-opening vignettes that spotlight the 'who, what, and how' of American politics, 'Profiles in Citizenship' that inspire students with personal interviews with political luminaries such as Sandra Day O'Connor and Rahm Emmanuel, and 'Consider the Source' boxes that help students critically read and digest political information. Other study aids include bolded key terms, chapter summaries, suggested resources, and a glossary. 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. 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 is currently working on another cookbook and a book about local politics, development, and the fishing industry in Apalachicola, Florida. Gerald C. Wright has taught political science at Indiana University since 1981. An accomplished scholar of American politics, and the 2010 winner of the State Politics and Policy Association's Career Achievement Award, his books include Statehouse Democracy: Public Opinion and Policy in the American States (1993), coauthored with Robert S. Erikson and John P. McIver, and he has published more than fifty articles on elections, public opinion, and state politics. Professor Wright has long studied the relationship among citizens, their preferences, and public policy. He is currently conducting research with grants from the National Science Foundation and the Russell Sage Foundation on the factors that influence the equality of policy representation in the states and in Congress. He is also writing a book about representation in U.S. legislatures. He has been a consultant for Project Vote Smart in the past several elections. Professor Wright is a member of Indiana University's Freshman Learning Project, a university-wide effort to improve the first-year undergraduate experience by focusing on how today's college students learn and how teachers can adapt their pedagogical methods to best teach them. In his nonworking hours, Professor Wright also likes to spend time with his dogs, travel, eat good food, and play golf. Greg Giroux was previously a senior writer with CQ-Roll Call Group, specializing in politics and elections. He has been a major contributor to the past six editions of CQ's Politics in America, the almanac that profiles all members of Congress and their constituencies. Giroux joined CQ in 1996 and served as editorial assistant and researcher at the CQ Weekly magazine prior to joining the political reporting staff in 1998. Giroux is a graduate of The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va.
