“Creative Participation: Responsibility-Taking in a Political World” presents the theory and practice of innovative forms of political participation. Citizens as consumers engage in political shopping; capitalists can build green developments; UK Muslim youth search the internet; Sicilian housewives take on the Mafia; young evangelical ministers become concerned with social change; vegetarians make a political statement; individuals may swarm like honeybees. It’s all part of a new politics of participation; citizens cooperate in public action to achieve a common good.
