How American political participation is increasingly being shaped by citizens who wield more resources.

Politically active individuals and organizations make huge investments of time, energy, and money to influence everything from election outcomes to congressional subcommittee hearings to local school politics, while other groups and individual citizens seem woefully underrepresented in our political system. The Unheavenly Chorus is the most comprehensive and systematic examination of political voice in America ever undertaken--and its findings are sobering. The Unheavenly Chorus is the first book to look at the political participation of individual citizens alongside the political advocacy of thousands of organized interests--membership associations such as unions, professional associations, trade associations, and citizens groups, as well as organizations like corporations, hospitals, and universities.

The authors focus on the central issues of involvement: how people come to be active and the issues they raise when they do. They find fascinating differences along cultural lines, among African-Americans, Latinos, and Anglo-Whites, as well as between the religiously observant and the secular. They observe family activism moving from generation to generation, and they look into the special role of issues that elicit involvement, including abortion rights and social welfare. This far-reaching analysis, based on an original survey of 15, individuals, including 2, long personal interviews, shows that some individuals have a greater voice in politics than others, and that this inequality results not just from varying inclinations toward activity, but also from unequal access to vital resources such as education. This deeply researched study brilliantly illuminates the many facets of civic consciousness and action and confirms their quintessential role in American democracy. While astronomer Vera Rubin made significant contributions to our understanding of dark matter and championed the advancement of women in science, she is not that well known outside of the scientific community.

Add to Cart. Cutting-edge research by prominent social scientists on new topics and methods of inquiry in the field of civic participation. Individuals who are civically active have three things in common: they have the capacity to do so, they want to, and they have been asked to participate. New Advances in the Study of Civic Voluntarism is dedicated to examining the continued influence of these factors—resources, engagement, and recruitment—on civic participation in the twenty-first century. The contributors to this volume examine recent social, political, technological, and intellectual changes to provide the newest research in the field. Topics range from race and religion to youth in the digital age, to illustrate the continued importance of understanding the role of the everyday citizen in a democratic society.

This book confirms Alexis de Tocqueville's idea, dating back a century and a half, that American democracy is rooted in civil society. Citizens' involvement in family, school, work, voluntary associations, and religion has a significant impact on their participation as voters, campaigners, donors, community activists, and protesters.

Voice and Equality: Civic Voluntarism in American Politics

We investigate how inequalities in political participation are shaped across generations by considering the influence of family background-in particular, parents' education and political involvement-on political participation. We pursue this issue, first, for individuals, investigating the effects of parental characteristics on the participatory profile of their offspring. Then, we use what we have learned to understand how group differences in political participation-between women and men and among Latinos, African Americans, and Anglo Whites-are rooted in the legacy of class and political background and in experiences throughout the life cycle.

Harvard Univ. Is American citizenship in crisis? Yes, say most pundits, not to mention most scholars of contemporary political life. A more nuanced reply appears in this comprehensive study, based on a massive survey of more than 15, Americans. Having conducted their investigation at the end of the s, a decade fraught with fractious single-issue politics and virulent partisan combat, political scientists Verba, Schloz-man, and Brady report evidence that somewhat contradicts the stereotype of mounting public cynicism toward political institutions.

Сверху хлестала вода, прямо как во время полночного шторма. Стратмор откинул голову назад, словно давая каплям возможность смыть с него вину. Я из тех, кто добивается своей цели.

Сделка всей его жизни только что распалась - за каких-то несколько минут. Стратмор продолжал спуск. Сделка отменяется. Нуматек корпорейшн никогда не получит невзламываемый алгоритм… а агентство - черный ход в Цифровую крепость. Он очень долго планировал, как осуществит свою мечту, и выбрал Нуматаку со всей тщательностью.

Он был зашифрован с помощью некоего нового алгоритма, с которым фильтры еще не сталкивались. Джаббе потребовалось почти шесть часов, чтобы их настроить. Бринкерхофф выглядел растерянным. - Стратмор был вне. Он заставил Джаббу вмонтировать в ТРАНСТЕКСТ переключатель системы Сквозь строй, чтобы отключить фильтры в случае, если такое повторится.

 Я никого не собираюсь убивать. - Что ты говоришь. Расскажи это Чатрукьяну. Стратмор подошел ближе. - Чатрукьян мертв. - Да неужели.

Потом, тяжело вздохнув, скомандовал: - Хорошо. Запускайте видеозапись. ГЛАВА 117 - Трансляция видеофильма начнется через десять секунд, - возвестил трескучий голос агента Смита.

Даже те, кто использовал электронную почту лишь для развлечения, занервничали из-за вторжения в их частную жизнь. Корпоративные программисты во всем мире озаботились решением проблемы безопасности электронной почты. В конце концов оно было найдено - так родился доступный широкой публике способ кодирования. Его концепция была столь же проста, сколь и гениальна. Она состояла из легких в использовании программ для домашнего компьютера, которые зашифровывали электронные послания таким образом, что они становились абсолютно нечитаемыми.
