Editorial Reviews


"Parents and educators may be especially interested in Levine's thoughts on more deeply engaging young people through field trips, mock elections and service projects and will find helpful information [on] civic learning in school, civic learning in communities, and practical ways to enhance the civic engagement of youth and adults." —Washington Parent

"The Future of Democracy: Developing the Next Generation of American Citizens is a wonderful example of an important type of scholarship. It emerges from practice and is substantiated by comprehensive research about a critical social problem: In the past 25 years, many of us in the United States have become more familiar with our roles as consumers than our roles as citizens. Peter Levine focuses on conditions among young people as a beacon for understanding the breath and consequences of this problem . . . Levine's book is both a well-researched statement about the status of civic engagement in America and a persuasive, focused call for action." —Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly


“Levine’s book is a little gem that I will keep on my bookshelf, close at hand. I first met Levine through his work on the Civic Mission of Schools, setting forth a consensus view of what we can do in our nation’s schools to rescue students from the era of civic and historical illiteracy. The Future of Democracy is an apt name for this book. Without taking more aggressive steps as a nation to put our country's civic health on the national radar screen—and to engage families, schools, communities, churches and political institutions in fostering a spirit of civic commitment among our young people—the future of that democracy looks grim. Levine finds innovative ways at all levels of education and governance to rescue it.” (John M. Bridgeland, Former Director, White House Domestic Policy Council & USA Freedom Corps)
