Civic Innovation & American Democracy.
Sirianni, Carmen; Friedland, Lewis
Change, v29 n1 p14-23 Jan-Feb 1997
Argues that American democracy is at a critical stage of development, with declining trust in government, citizens feeling displaced by a professional political class, derailed public interest, and policy that limits citizen deliberation and responsibility. Some instances of civic innovation, community organization, civic journalism, and efforts in higher education are seen as reflecting a movement toward civic revitalization. (MSE)
