Civic matters affect all members of a community and are thus of potential concern to all. In Community Matters: Challenges to Civic Engagement in the 21st Century, six distinguished scholars address three perennial challenges of civic life: the making of a citizen, how citizens are to agree (and disagree), and how to define the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. The thought-provoking essays in this volume discuss integral civic concerns such as: how can we improve civic education? How do we address controversy within our communities? What are the responsibilities of a citizen? Should the national draft be re-instated in the U.S? These essays will encourage students, academics, and interested citizens outside the academy to go farther and dig deeper into these vital issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Community Matters makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of key issues in civic education, multicultural conflict, and national service. It is a must read for those engaged in debates on civic renewal in the U.S. I recommend it highly. -- Carmen Sirianni, Professor of Sociology and Public Policy and Chair of the Department of Sociology, Brandeis University
Community Matters makes an extremely helpful contribution to a pressing issue for the country: How do we stop the hollowing out of our own democracy and rebuild a culture of healthy civic participation? This collection of essays is a nice civic sampler - aiding us with sound analysis, thoughtful insights and good advice. -- David Skaggs, Former Member of Congress and Executive Director, Center for Democracy & Citizenship, Council for Excellence in Government
