Education and Democratic Citizenship in America

Overview

Formal education is crucial for creating enlightened and active citizens. The better educated are more engaged, more knowledgeable, and more politically tolerant. Despite a dramatic increase in education attainment over the last quarter century, political engagement has not risen at a commensurate level. How and why education affects citizenship in these ways has until now been a puzzle.

Overview

Formal education is crucial for creating enlightened and active citizens. The better educated are more engaged, more knowledgeable, and more politically tolerant. Despite a dramatic increase in education attainment over the last quarter century, political engagement has not risen at a commensurate level. How and why education affects citizenship in these ways has until now been a puzzle.

Norman H. Nie, Jane Junn, and Kenneth Stehlik-Barry provide answers by uncovering the causal relationship between education and democratic citizenship. They argue that citizenship encompasses both political engagement in pursuit of interests and commitment to democratic values that temper what citizens can do to win in politics. Education affects the two dimensions in distinct ways. Especially significant is the influence of education on political engagement through occupational prominence and position in social networks. Formal education orders the distribution of social position and connections and creates an uneven political playing field.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The first comprehensive study in English of Brazil's Pantanal of Mato Grosso, the largest wetlands in the world and home for an amazing variety of plant and animal life. Por (evolution and ecology, The Hebrew U. of Jerusalem) does a great service by presenting this volume as the Pantanal's bordering countries seek to open a waterway at the Rio Paraguay which will, of course, affect this environmentally rich area. The author provides a history of its discovery by the Europeans, and slides up the evolutionary scale by presenting information on the Pantanal's geological data, climate, hydrochemistry, aquatic vegetation, terrestrial vegetation, aquatic meiofauna, fisheries, herpetofauna, avifauna, mammmals, and humans. The final sections regarding environmental issues and ecotourism are of particular value to readers interested in nature conservancy. Includes maps, illustrations, and photographs which are beautiful even in poorly produced black and white. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
