Description

Through a series of carefully chosen vignettes, Stephen E. Frantzich portrays citizens from every walk of life-rich and poor, old and young, black and white, male and female, left and right, famous and obscure engaged in extraordinary civic activity. Their causes run the gamut from civil rights to flag burning, from the Internet to the environment-but their common cause is the fact that they creatively entered the arena of national public policy making and made a difference.
