Summary
  • "Now, more than ever, people drive the democratic process. What people think of their government and its leaders, how (or whether) they vote, and what they do or say about a host of political issues greatly affect the further strengthening or erosion of democracy and democratic ideals. This fully updated new sixth edition of 'Citizen Politics' continues to offer the only truly comparative study of political attitudes and behavior in the United States, Great Britain, France, and Germany."--
