Summary
"From interviews, focus groups, and a national survey, paints a comprehensive picture of today's campus political attitudes. Contrasts the current climate of disengagement with the original civic mission of American colleges and universities, and suggests how universities can reclaim and strengthen their place in the nation's political and civic life"--Provided by publisher
