Overview

Everyday Politics: The Power of Public Work / Edition 1

"Harry Boyte and the Center for Democracy and Citizenship have without doubt exercised the premier intellectual leadership role in the movement for civic renewal in the U.S. over the past decade. In Everyday Politics, Boyte describes their approach." --Carmen Sirianni, coauthor, Civic Innovation in America

"As Mark Twain said about the weather, everybody talks about the need for a new politics of participation and deliberation, but nobody does anything about it. Harry Boyte has. Through a combination of experience, political analysis, and philosophy, he shows us how 'everyday politics' can actually improve people's lives." --Jennifer Hochschild, Professor of African American Studies and Political Science, Harvard University, and editor of Perspectives on Politics

"Boyte's novel take on the burgeoning efforts to renew civic life is a must-read for scholars and community-based practitioners alike who are recreating work-centered commonwealth traditions in an information age." --David Mathews, President, Kettering Foundation
