Phi Delta Kappan
Anxiety about the civic attitudes and activities of young adults in
America is nothing new, and its persistence is easy to understand.

exception, young adults seem to have been less attached to civic life
than their parents and grandparents. Nor is it difficult to find plausible
explanations for this gap.
