The update to this brief, accessible, and provocative book continues to explore the reasons why the young are less and less likely to follow politics and vote in the United States, as well as in many other established democracies. The book suggests ways of changing that, and now includes a postscript on new forms of citizen engagement to show how students can and are joining in other forms of political participation such as protesting, volunteering, blogging, and boycotting.
