Description - Reclaiming Democracy by Meta Mendel-Reyes
Reclaiming Democracy combines personal experience with political and historical analysis, while challenging a wide range of sixties observers from George Will to Oliver Stone. In a time of cynicism about the American government's ability to solve the crises of poverty and racism, Mendel-Reyes places the decline of political participation in historical context. She discusses ways in which democratic participation was at the heart of sixties politics; the civil rights movement, the anti-war movement, the women's movement, and the New Left all emphasized the everyday participation of ordinary people in activism and public life and thus illustrates that such action can make a difference in the politics of the nineties.
