Product description

Updated in a 3rd edition, IsVoting for Young People? explores the reasons why the young are less likely to follow politics and vote in the United States, as well as in many other established democracies.  This brief, accessible, and provocative book suggests ways of changing that, and now includes a chapter on young people's role in the 2008 and 2010 elections.
