Beschreibung:

The Good Citizen uses a new 2014 national opinion survey to describe how Americans’ views of what it means to be a good citizen is changing. Russell J. Dalton shows that contrary to conventional wisdom, younger generations are more politically engaged, more politically tolerant, and more supportive of social justice; the young are creating new norms of citizenship that are leading to a renaissance of democratic participation. The new edition of this groundbreaking work will reshape the way we think about the American public, American youth, and the prospects for contemporary democracy. It describes Americans’ changing citizenship norms, the emergence of the Millennial Generation, how the Internet is changing participation patterns, and a new statistical primer to help students understand the survey findings.
