Part of the Longman Topics reader series Citizenship Now examines the meaning of citizenship in our changing society and encourages student participation in revitalizing our communities. This brief collection of readings focuses on the crucial role of the citizen in the democratic process. Thought-provoking selections ask students to think about timely and relevant issues, such as civil liberties vs. increased national security, consumerist values and environmental responsibility, and immigration and the need for educational reform. Divided into five chapters, each features six or seven essays of varying lengths. Brief apparatus helps students write more thoughtfully in response to the selections and think more critically about their roles as citizens. Longman Topics are brief, attractive readers on a single complex, but compelling, topic. Featuring about 30 full-length selections, these volumes are generally half the size and half the cost of standard composition readers.
