Readers are pushed 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. Carefully condensed from the full version by authors Christine Barbour and Gerald Wright, Keeping the Republic, Brief Edition gives students all the continuity and crucial content,  in a more concise, value-oriented package.
