Book Description Cognella Academic Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 277 x 216 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Positive civic engagement can range from the smallest interpersonal gesture to the largest government-sponsored social program. Communication, Culture and Community reintroduces readers to the importance of civic engagement, and to the idea that American society is built on sharing with and caring for fellow citizens. The book is organized into three sections. Part One questions whether civic engagement is a disappearing trait in a society that increasingly seems to focus on the individual. Part Two explores the foundations of communication, culture, and community. Part Three details practices and policies of civic engagement. Opening with a call for re-engagement, the text then moves on to address topics such as high quality civic education, building social capital, the role of citizenship in students daily lives, cultural approaches to communication, and theoretical and pedagogical perspectives on global citizenship. Communication, Culture and Community can be used in courses on communication, education, and political science. Patricia Darlington earned her Ph.D. at the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL.
