This is a well-researched and insightful book on the current and recent progressive youth movement. Mike Connery shows how the Democratic Party could better reach out to youth by targeting music and cultural events and making participation "fun," but that this is not always happening.

This is a great book outlining the etiology of the current youth movement and its potential to concretely impact Progressive politics for decades to come.

Well researched and documented. ...more

The title describes this book well - its a good overview of the recent involvement of young progressives, and the historic role of youth in politics in the United States. This overview is something any young progressive should be aware of if he/she is interested in implementing change.
