Description

Public Spaces, Private Lives argues for a new language of engaged hope, political action, and democratic public participation. In an era when Americans regard politicians and government cynically, this book challenges the assumption that politics is dead-and shows why and how citizens must claim a revitalized role in American public and democratic institutions.
