  • The Capacity for Civic Engagementby David P. Levine

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 105.00

    While we do not lack for literature to guide us in thinking about public life, we have less to call on when our problem is not only to explore public ideals and institutions, but also to consider the nature and origin of our capacity to make a connection with and find meaning in those institutions and ideals. Levine explores the nature and origin... more...
