Loeb, Paul Rogat

Explores how to address the perceptual barriers that dissuade student involvement in social and political issues, including feelings of resignation and helplessness, belief that they must be perfect in their knowledge and confidence before tackling such issues, lack of real knowledge about role models, and a disconnection between smaller, one-on-one altruistic efforts and work as public advocates.
