Participation in America: political democracy and social equality by Sidney Verba( Book )

39 editions published between 1972 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Participation in America represents the largest study ever conducted of the ways in which citizens participate in American political life. Sidney Verba and Norman H. Nie addresses the question of who participates in the American democratic process, how, and with what effects. They distinguish four kinds of political participation: voting, campaigning, communal activity, and interaction with a public official to achieve a personal goal. Using a national sample survey and interviews with leaders in 64 communities, the authors investigate the correlation between socioeconomic status and political participation. Recipient of the Kammerer Award (1972), Participation in America provides fundamental information about the nature of American democracy

Education and democratic citizenship in America by Norman H Nie( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Norman H. Nie, Jane Junn, and Kenneth Stehlik-Barry explore in this volume the causal relationships between education and democratic citizenship. They argue that citizenship encompasses both political engagement in pursuit of political interests as well as commitment to democratic values that temper what citizens are willing to do to win in politics. Education affects these two dimensions in distinct ways, influencing democratic enlightenment through cognitive proficiency and sophistication, and political engagement through position in social networks. For characteristics of enlightenment, formal education simply adds to the degree to which citizens support and are knowledgeable about democratic principles. But for political engagement, education orders the distribution of social position and connections, creating an inherently uneven political playing field

The future of political science : 100 perspectives by Gary King( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains some of the newest, most exciting ideas now percolating among political scientists, from hallway conversations to conference room discussions. To spur future research, enrich classroom teaching, and direct non-specialist attention to cutting-edge ideas, a distinguished group of authors from various parts of this sprawling and pluralistic discipline has each contributed a brief essay about a single novel or insufficiently appreciated idea on some aspect of political science. The one hundred essays are concise, no more than a few pages apiece, and informal. While the contributions are highly diverse, readers can find serendipitous connections across the volume, tracing echoes as well as diametrically opposed points of view. This book offers compelling points of departure for everyone who is concerned about political science - whether as a scholar, teacher, student, or interested reader

The focus of this study is individual political participation, both at the local and national levels.

Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, education, religion, employment status (including occupation and industry), marital status, political orientation and activity, years of local residency, age of children in household, and family income
Political Participation and Equality in Seven Nations, 1966-1971 by Sidney Verba( )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection is composed of seven files: six individual country datasets (Austria, India, Japan, Netherlands, Nigeria, and Yugoslavia) and a comparative cross-national dataset. The study resulted from data collected for the collaborative project "Cross-National Program in Political and Social Change" in seven nations conducted primarily by Sidney Verba, Norman H. Nie, and Jae-On Kim. This survey was designed to deal comprehensively with one aspect of the larger study: to ascertain the ways citizens participate politically in local and national affairs and the processes that lead them to do so. Personal interviews were conducted from 1966 to 1971 in seven nations, including the United States. The United States dataset can be found separately in the collection, POLITICAL PARTICIPATION IN AMERICA, 1967 [ICPSR 7015], and is included in the Cross-National file (Part 7). Questions were asked to measure respondents' involvement in political organizations at both the local and national levels, participation in formal and informal community groups, the extent of individual contact with public officials, attitudes toward recent political and social changes, and interest in the political process. Demographic items specify age, sex, marital status, occupation, household composition, length of stay in community, size of community, education, home ownership, family income, political party identification, religion, race, union membership, position in union, and reason for joining union....

The hard count : the political and social challenges of census mobilization by D. Sunshine Hillygus( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"American democracy relies on an accurate census to fairly allocate political representation and billions of dollars in federal funds. Declining participation in previous censuses and a general waning of civic engagement in society raised the possibility that the 2000 count would miss many Americans - disproportionately ethnic and racial minorities - depriving them of their share of influence in American society and yielding an unfair distribution of federal resources. Faced with this possibility, the Census Bureau launched a massive mobilization campaign to encourage Americans to complete and return their census forms. In The Hard Count, former Census Bureau director Kenneth Prewitt, D. Sunshine Hillygus, Norman H
