About the Author

Walter C. Parker is Professor of Education and Adjunct Professor of Political Science at the University of Washington, Seattle.


"At a moment in time when our connection to the nation seems superficial and jingoistic, Walter Parker offers us a vehicle to reach our ideal of deliberative, committed civic participation for every citizen. This book explores the hard work of citizen-making in a diverse and complex society where individual and group interests often are in conflict. Parker makes us realize that in a democracy 'public' is not a dirty word and schooling should not be punishment." Gloria Ladson-Billings, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"This book deals in an engaging and thought-provoking way with both social realities and democratic possibilities exactly what I try to do in my classroom."
Wendy Ewbank, teacher, Seattle Girls' School
