Product Overview

In searching for answers as to why young people differ vastly from their parents and grandparents when it comes to turning out the vote,A New Engagementchallenges the conventional wisdom that today's youth is plagued by a severe case of political apathy. In order to understand the current nature of citizen engagement, it is critical to separate political from civic engagement. Using the results from an original set of surveys and the authors' own primary research, they conclude that while older citizens participate by voting, young people engage by volunteering and being active in their communities.
