              Silent Citizenship: The Politics of Marginality in Unequal Democracies

              What does silent citizenship mean in a democracy? With levels of economic and political inequality on the rise across the developed democracies, citizens are becoming more disengaged from their neighbourhoods and communities, more distrustful of politicians and political parties,... more sceptical of government goods and services, and less interested in voicing their frustrations in public or at the ballot box. The result is a growing number of silent citizens who seem disconnected from democratic politics - who are unaware of political issues, lack knowledge about public affairs, do not debate, deliberate, or take action, and most fundamentally, do not vote. Yet, although silent citizenship can and does indicate deficits of democracy, research suggests that these deficits are not the only reason citizens may have for remaining silent in democratic life. Silence may also reflect an active and engaged response to politics under highly unequal conditions. What is missing is a full accounting of the problems and possibilities for democracy that silent citizenship represents. Bringing together leading scholars in political science and democratic theory, this book provides a valuable exploration of the changing nature and form of silent citizenship in developed democracies today. This title was previously published as a special issue of Citizenship Studies.

              The White Working Class: What Everyone Needs to Know (R)

              In recent years, the world has been re-introduced to the constituency of "white working class" people. In a wave of revolutionary populism, far right parties have scored victories across the transatlantic political world: Britain voted to leave the European Union, the United Stat...es elected President Donald Trump to enact an "America First" agenda, and Radical Right movements are threatening European centrists in elections across the Continent. In each case, white working class people are driving a broad reaction to the inequities and social change brought by globalisation, and its cosmopolitan champions. In the midst of this rebellion, a new group consciousness has emerged among the very people who not so long ago could take their political, economic, and cultural primacy for granted.Who are white working class people? What do they believe? Are white working class people an "interest group"? What has driven them to break so sharply with the world's trajectory toward a more borderless, interconnected meritocracy? How can a group with such enduring power feel marginalised? This perplexing constituency must be understood if the world is to address and respond to the social and political backlash they are driving.The White Working Class: What Everyone Needs to KnowA provides the context for understanding the politics of this large, perplexing group of people. The book begins by explaining what "white working class" means in terms of demographics, history, and geography, as well as the ways in which this group defines itself and has been defined by others. It will address whether white identity is on the rise, why white people perceive themselves as marginalised, and the roles of racism and xenophobia in white consciousness. It will also look at whether the white working class has distinct political attitudes, their voting behaviour, and their prospects for the future. This accessible book provides a nuanced view into the forces driving one of the most complicated and co

              Policy researchers and experts across many subjects spend their professional lives developing ideas with public implications, but many are unable to make a public impact. A key reason for this is that higher education undervalues a critical tool for translating policy ideas into ...action: the ability to communicate those ideas broadly, strategically, and effectively. To address this communication gap, Justin Gest has written a primer to help public policy students, multi-disciplinary researchers, and policy professionals turn their analyses into clear and persuasive campaigns with mass appeal. In clear, concise prose, he lays out how to transform sophisticated ideas into accessible media formats and how to target the desired audience. Each chapter includes advice from world-class practitioners and an example to illustrate paragons of different forms of communication: executive summaries; press releases; op-eds and blogs; briefings; broadcast interviews; elevator pitches; and social media.
