Audiobook of OpenStax’s American Government 3e

We produced a free audiobook of American Government 3e, an OpenStax textbook. This textbook provides an introduction to US government and civics, and is used widely in college-level Political Science courses. We believe that this project will be helpful to everyone, and especially to those who are auditory learners, students with disabilities, and students who speak English as a second language.

The audio recordings are all offered under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY-SA 4.0). You are free to use, revise, remix, and share these recordings as long as you give proper attribution and share any derivative projects under the same license.

The producers of this project are Brian Barrick and Sarah Arya. We are not affiliated with OpenStax, but we are fans of their work. The full textbook is available for free at Some editorial changes were made to the text to ensure a better listening experience.

The intro and outro music is “Take Me Higher” by Jahzzar (CC-BY-SA).

Funding for this project was provided by CC-ECHO (California Consortium for Equitable Change in Hispanic Serving Institutions Open Educational Resources). The contents of this audiobook were developed under an Open Textbooks Pilot grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), U.S. Department of Education.
