Reviews

'Civic engagement is a moving target, as new forms of communication and social connection bring new possibilities for engagement with civil society. But in the face of such change, the importance of colleges and universities as civic educators remains. This volume will be of great value to college-level instructors as they look for ways to foster greater civic engagement among their students; it will be equally valuable to scholars looking to build on cutting-edge research on how the college classroom can serve a civic purpose.' - David E. Campbell, Packey J. Dee Professor of American Democracy, University of Notre Dame, USA
