Description: We are not born citizens, but must be educated and trained to be citizens. This is the central tenet of The New Citizenship, which builds on the participatory democratic vision of the 1960s. Arguing that civic effort must go beyond merely voting, Craig Rimmerman examines grassroots mobilization, community activism, service learning, and the Internet as potential tools for confronting the breakdown of civility in U.S. politics. This second edition considers different vehicles for expressing the new citizenship, including the protests in Seattle over the IMF & World Bank, new organizations such as the 2030 Center, and how groups on both the political left and right are using the Internet as a crucial organizing tool. This second edition also explores in greater detail the literature on service learning and its connection to different conceptions of the new citizenship.
