KEY FEATURES OF KEEPING THE REPUBLIC, BRIEF NINTH EDITION

  • A revitalization of the book’s theme reflects the influences of modern technology on power and citizenship, in particular the ways that citizenship is mediated by third parties. Integrated throughout the book, the theme encourages students to look at the ways that controlling the political narrative has translated into political power and how that power has shifted with the advent of new and social media.
  • New What’s at Stake . . . ? vignettes introduce students to topics such as the activism of the Black Lives Matter movement, the continued rise of the alt right and the Make America Great Again movement, the impact of political outsiders on the nomination process and parties, what happens when the federal government lacks the will or the ability to address national problems like the pandemic, and the unusual presidency of Donald Trump.
  • Up-to-date 2020 election coverage and analysis, particularly in the chapters on Congress, the presidency, public opinion, political parties, and campaigns and elections, provide students with a current snapshot of the results.
  • Updated throughout to account for recent developments including:
    • Congress’ impeachment proceedings against the president in 2019 and his acquittal in early February 2020;
    • The impact of COVID-19 in the United States and across the world, including: the politicization of masks, unemployment and government subsidies to stimulate the economy, virtual Party conventions, its impact on voting, and what happens when the federal government lacks the will or ability to address national problems;
    • The impact of political outsiders on the presidency, the White House, and our bureaucracy;
    • The rise of both the Black Lives Matter and Make America Great Again movements, especially in light of political polarization, mass movements, and social unrest;
    • The repeal of Obama-era climate change initiatives and treaties in an effort to protect coal and fossil fuel industries in the face of more dramatic weather events and rising temperatures.
