Audible Editor Reviews

Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss begins with a speech about civic responsibility and the responsibilities of citizens in a democratic society. A longtime proponent of civic engagement and active citizenship, Dreyfuss talks about incorporating these values into education. Dreyfuss is skilled at reaching out to listeners, and he clearly has the audience held rapt by his persuasiveness. Veteran political journalist and political editor of New York Magazine Michael Kramer plays devil's advocate and challenges Dreyfuss' assertions, and listeners will be both entertained and enlightened by the arguments raised during their conversation.

Publisher's Summary

Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss has spent nearly five decades on the stage and silver screen. However, through his longtime interest in political and social activism, Dreyfuss has emerged as a leading voice in the area of civic engagement and active citizenship, earning posts at St. Antony's College, the University of Oxford, and the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles ACLU Foundation.

Just what are the responsibilities of citizens in a democratic society? Are civic roles in government and everyday life inherent, or do they need to be formally taught? Finally, what are the consequences of letting civic accountability wane?

Michael Kramer is a veteran political journalist, formerly serving as chief political correspondent for Time magazine and political editor of New York Magazine.
