Citizen Participation: Effecting Community Change.
Cahn, Edgar S., Ed.; Passett, Barry A., Ed.
This document is divided into three parts. Part I is a contemporary extension to the Jefferson-Madison dialogue, as it projects the provisions of the democratic credo into the current conflict between government and citizen over the status of individual and community self-determinism. In philosophical terms, the realities of today's democracy are matched to the credos of the past, the needs of the present, and the options for the future. Part II treats a number of general concerns regarding citizen participation. Here are some academically disciplined points of view: the sociology, politics, and public administration of citizen participation. Part III is a series of monographs which treat specific issues in citizen participation. (Author/CK)
