Reviewed by eJournal of Public Affairs
Keith Morton, PhD, a professor in the Department of Public and Community Service Studies at Providence College, recently reviewed Our Towns for the eJournal of Public Affairs. He describes the book as offering a “deliberate, grounded, and thoughtful counterpoint to the strident national narrative of an increasingly polarized, angry, and alienated citizenry.”
He goes on to recommend it as “a wonderful book for introducing students and community members—in high school civics courses, in “community engaged” courses at colleges, in local voluntary associations, in public leadership roles—to possibility and to a strong case that locates, explains, and validates the many small efforts in which they are involved.”
