Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Civic Service

Filled with illustrative examples of effective service-learning lessons from across a variety of disciplines, Civic Service shows faculty and administrators of institutions of higher education what it takes to collaborate effectively with government partners such as city councils, school districts, and public agencies. Written to be flexible, the examples can also be applied to service-learning courses working with businesses and nonprofit organizations. This important resource can give faculty and administrators the inspiration and guidance they need to take the lead in creating their own service-learning programs.

"Service-learning with state and local government partners can have a crucial impact on our country's future. If we are to successfully navigate the unscripted future we all face, we must raise the bar in confronting the multiple challenges in our society. Just as the problems facing us are real, so are the opportunities for vision, for renewal, and fortapping into fresh, creative approaches to addressing these problems."
—From the foreword by Kay W. Barnes, Distinguished Professor of Public Leadership, Park University, and former mayor, Kansas City, Missouri

"This is an important book. At a time when we have come to a fresh appreciation of the critical importance of government in fostering and sustaining the common good, Redlawsk and Rice provide us with case studies that illustrate how service-learning can contribute to this work. Their book not only contains a variety of different disciplinary and partnering models, it also includes the voices of key stakeholders—including government officials—not always heard in service-learning circles. This volume should be in the library of every service-learning program. It helps us reconceptualize how service-learning can and should contribute to civic renewal."
—John Saltmarsh, professor of higher education administration and director, New England Resource Center for Higher Education, University of Massachusetts, Boston, and Edward Zlotkowski, professor of English, Bentley University

More About the Author

David P. Redlawsk is Director, Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling and Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. Professor Redlawsk received his Ph.D. and M.A. from Rutgers University. He also holds an M.B.A. from Vanderbilt University and a B.A. from Duke University. His research focuses on campaign, elections, the role of information in voter decision making and on emotional responses to campaign information. He has received several grants to support his research from the National Science Foundation, and he served on the Board of the American National Election Studies from 2009-2014.

Prof. Redlawsk's newest book (with Kyle Mattes) is The Positive Case for Negative Campaigning (University of Chicago Press 2014). In this book, he argues that negative campaigning is a positive for democracy, injecting important information into the political environment that voters could and would not otherwise infer if it were suppressed. The book uses multiple methods to address the informational value for voters of attack advertising.

He is also the author (with Caroline Tolbert and Todd Donovan) of Why Iowa?: Sequential Elections, Reform and U.S. Presidential Nominations published by the University of Chicago Press in 2010. Other books include, How Voters Decide: Information Processing in an Election Campaign, (with Richard Lau) published by Cambridge University Press and winner of the 2007 Alexander George Award for best Book in Political Psychology from the International Society of Political Psychology and an edited volume, Feeling Politics: Emotion in Political Information Processing by Palgrave-Macmillan.

Prof. Redlawsk's research has also been published in the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Politics, and the American Journal of Political Science, as well as the journal Political Psychology among others. He has served as co-editor of the journal Political Psychology and as a member of the Governing Council of the International Society of Political Psychology. He was chair of the Political Psychology Organized Section of the American Political Science Association for 2009-2010.

Professor Redlawsk is also interested in civic engagement and service-learning pedagogies. He is editor (with Tom Rice) of Civic Service: Service-Learning with State and Local Government Partners published in 2009 by Jossey-Bass which highlights a number of exemplary service-learning projects across institutions and disciplines, all of which partner with local or state government providing reciprocal value to students and government agencies. Redlawsk teaches courses including Survey Research, Local Politics, Political Campaigning, Voting Behavior, Political Psychology, Decision Making, and Experimental Methods.
