Boyte incites readers to join todays citizen movement, offering practical tools for how we can change the face of America by focusing on issues close to home. Targeting useful techniques for individuals to raise public consciousness and effectively motivate community-based groups, Boyte grounds his arguments in the countrys tradition of populism, demonstrating how mobilized citizens can be far more powerful than our frequently paralyzed politicians.
