This rhetoric/reader promotes informed, active citizenship by encouraging students to write as a means of inquiry and civic participation. Promoting the “examined life” as an ideal that brings inquiry and action together, this new text addresses the critical thinking, reading, and writing skills that are central to both academic success and democratic participation. Students write to reflect on their experiences, put forward their views to academic and public audiences, shape library and field research, and go under other people's arguments, seeking to understand the values and beliefs that define differences of opinion and working towards negotiation and positive social action. The readings chapters explore common communities like family, campus, country, faith–based, planetary, and virtual. Individuals who want are interested in citizenship, community, and writing as social action.
