Reviews
"Civic education is addressed in this book by exploring a number of theories about its nature and purpose. At the same time, none of the authors refuses to consider practical meaning and applications of their ideas. While there are a number of books on ideas in post-modernism and participatory democracy, none successfully brings these ideas (and others) to focus on civic education as does this book. It is a book that deserves to be read, and especially to be placed in the hands of students in teacher education." -- J. J. Chambliss, Rutgers University
