BeschreibungScholars across several social science disciplines have indicated that the behavior described by the term civic engagement is girded by a set of attitudes that show knowledge about, and positive evaluations of, government and politics. Drawing on extensive interviews with high school students from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds, this book examines the sources of those attitudes.
