Citizen Democracy provides a fascinating account of how ordinary citizens can become heroic, critical analysts of public policy through awareness, engagement, and participation. Frantzich challenges us to examine injustices in our own communities and inspires civic educators to do the same with their own students. Teachers will find this a useful manual for planning advocacy by sharing the real stories from the 'kidizens'-youth activists involved with democracy in their communities. -- Marcie Taylor-Thoma, coordinator for social studies, Maryland State Department of Education Citizen Democracy provides a series of compelling stories which will motivate students to think about their potential as active citizens in a vibrant democracy. With the growing threat of cynicism, it is important to reinvigorate each new generation so they can play their role in maintaining the American experiment in self government. -- Charles N. Quigley, executive director, Center for Civic Education
