Acclaimed in its first edition for its emphasis on political participation and issues of race, class, and gender, this second edition goes a step further in encouraging Americans to get involved in the political process. Each chapter now concludes with a section on "The Citizen's Role," which shows how individuals can influence government and affect change for the benefit of themselves and society in general. New essays focus on specific college students who have run campaigns, voter drives, campus and community activities, or civil rights activities, while sidebars in each chapter, compiled from student interviews and survey results, show what tomorrow's leaders think about today's politics.
