Description

Written by Elizabeth C. Matto

Citizen now offers a comprehensive description of the composition and behavior of the Millennial Generation, an explanation and critique of the study of youth engagement, and a unique approach and methodology for appreciating how and why “citizen now” engages in politics and democracy. The text provides readers with a complete picture of the demographics and participation of Millennials and, through original analysis of newspaper content, a depiction of the frame through which the generation has been viewed. Although Millennials have been the object of much study and despite the despite the fairly common approach and methodology utilized by scholars, contrasting theoretical frameworks have limited our appreciation of their connection to politics. Unlike much of the research in this field, Citizen now considers youth political participation from the perspective of young adults themselves – specifically, young adults who’ve organized around an issue of great concern to Millennials, their economic well-being. By focusing not only on the generation’s actions but on the strategies and goals of these youth-led groups, the text offers both a path for future research and practical guidance on how to engage “citizen now” in politics and democracy.
