Everyday politics : reconnecting citizens and public life by Harry C Boyte( Book )

"Increasingly a spectator sport, electoral politics have become bitterly polarized by professional consultants and lobbyists, and have been boiled down to the distributive mantra of "who gets what." In Everyday Politics, Harry Boyte transcends partisan politics to offer an alternative. He demonstrates how community-rooted activities reconnect citizens to engaged, responsible public life, and not just on election day but throughout the year. Boyte demonstrates that this type of activism has a rich history and strong philosophical foundation." "Drawing on concrete examples of successful public work projects accomplished by diverse groups of people across the nation, Boyte demonstrates how citizens can master essential political skills such as understanding issues in public terms, mapping complex issues of institutional power to create alliances, raising funds, communicating, and negotiating across lines of difference. He describes how these skills can be used to address the larger challenges of our time, thereby advancing a renewed vision of democratic society and freedom in the twenty-first century."--Jacket

This study guide is designed to be used by any group of people interested in examining and strengthening the ways in which politics works tody. An argument is made that politics suffers because U.S. society largely has lost a strong sense of public life--a challenging, diverse, and dynamic arena beyond one's immediate family and friendship circles. Persons who use this guide are encouraged to think about and debate this view of public life, and then to discuss how politics is done today by evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of several common "modes" or definitions of politics: institutional, protests, service, and community-based problem solving. A final portion of the guide looks at "citizen politics" where people learn how to put public life back into politics. The central idea of citizen politics is that in public life people can learn the skills and develop the power to take leadership in solving society's problems on local, state, and national levels. Each of the six study sessions in the manual are followed by questions for discussion. The sessions are: (1) Traditions and Changes; (2) Institutional Politics: Representative Government; (3) Protest Politics: Citizens on the March; (4) Service Politics: Helping One Another; (5) Community Politics: Neighborhood Self-Help; and (6) Citizen Politics: People Taking Charge. Two appendices are included: the first contains suggestions on how to use this guide and the second lists 37 readings relevant to the themes of the guide. (Db)
