Review:

"Craig Rimmerman is among the few political scientists who both examine problems and offer solutions. "The New Citizenship: Unconventional Politics, Activism, and Service" draws upon the insights of political theorists and practitioners, assesses present-day participatory democracy, and offers recommendations for its improvement. This is a book that invites readers to learn - and then to take action."
MaryAnne Borrelli, Director, Holleran Center for Community Action and Public Policy, Connecticut College
"At few times in our history have we needed more understanding of the relationship of citizenship to a healthy democracy as we do now. Craig Rimmerman has done a masterful job in challenging us to think about the means to citizenship, but more importantly, the ends of sustained and enlightened civic engagement."
Suzanne W. Morse, Ph.D., Executive Director, Pew Partnership for Change"

This readable, engaging book addresses and urgent concern of our times, the decline of participation of college students in the democracy. Readers will come away with insight into both traditional and new forms of democratic participation and their appeal for the next generation. This an invaluable resource for faculty and students interested in American politics, history, social movements and civic engagement. Any faculty member teaching a service-learning course in any discipline will find it helpful for thinking through their course strategy and for civic reflection with their students."
--Elizabeth L. Hollander, Executive Director, Campus Compact

"A helpful first step in making political science courses relevant to our students once again. It is definitely worth considering for classroom adoption."
