About The Author

Christine Barbour

Christine Barbour

Dr. Christine Barbour teaches in Indiana University's Political Science Department and the Hutton Honors College, where she has become increasingly interested in how large-class teachers can maximize what their students learn. She is collaborating with online course designers to develop an online version of her Intro to American Politics course.

Professor Barbour has been a Lilly Fellow at Indiana University, where she worked 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 was a member of the New York Times College Advisory Board, where she collaborated with other educators to find ways to incorporate newspaper reading into the undergraduate curriculum. She has received several teaching awards, but the two given to her by her students mean the most to her: the Indiana University Student Alumni Association Award for Outstanding Faculty and the Brown Derby Award from the Indiana University Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

Professor Barbour enjoys playing with her dogs, traveling with her coauthor, and writing about food when she is not teaching or writing textbooks.
She is the Bloomington-based Bloom Magazine's food editor and the coauthor of Indiana Cooks! and Home Grown Indiana.

This dynamic and refreshed Keeping the Republic 8th edition (PDF) revitalizes the twin themes of power and citizenship by adding to the imperative for college students to navigate competing political narratives about who should get what, and how they should get it. The exploding possibilities of the digital age make this task all the more complex and urgent. Gerald Wright and Christine Barbour, the authors of this bestselling textbook, continue to meet college students where they are in order to give them a sophisticated understanding of American politics and teach them the skills to think critically about it. The entire ebook has been refocused to look not just at power and citizenship but at the role that control of information and its savvy consumption play in keeping the republic. Keeping the Republic, The Essentials 8th edition is identical to the full version of the textbook, minus the 3 policy chapters.
