Review

"....[Norris's] arguments are cogent, theoretically rigorous, and backed by the best available data in the field. An elegantly written and important book. Highly recommended." Choice

Book Description

Conventional wisdom suggests that citizens in many countries have become disengaged from traditional political participation.
