"The main strengths of The Civil Mind are its conceptual framework and its diverse selection of readings. This is especially true with respect to historical and cultural issues. In the process of advancing their writing skills, the book forces students to view themselves as part of a continuum or ongoing civic process and to make sense of past and current events."
"I would definitely consider adopting The Civil Mind for my classroom because its an excellent and responsible textbook containing content that will educate my students in ways much more important than can be gained by most "average" class discussions, and it does so without ignoring the mechanical side of language. It gives students reason and occasion to write, teaching by examples both literal in form and passionate."
"I anticipate the help offered by The Civil Mind to be greatly appreciated and useful for college students and professors alike."
