Invisible Citizens offers a refreshingly realistic assessment of young America's attitudes towards politics and the impact of September 11 on youth political engagement. Written by young people from across the country, it elucidates the worries of a generation, untangles the true reasons for youth disinterest and disengagement with public affairs, and offers America's policymakers, educators, and parents a set of fresh solutions for restoring civic spirit among young people. The book's compelling interpretation of September 11 as an opportunity to inspire youth political engagement and renew widespread civic participation in America makes it an invaluable read for anyone concerned with the future of American politics. Its gripping memoirs and persuasive argument make it a text that cannot be overlooked. "A thoughtful, ground-level view of the single biggest crisis facing our political system: the desertion of the young. We should be paying attention." -Matt Bai, contributing writer, New York Times Magazine "These two bright new talents ask questions that will make the policymakers squirm. Presented in the voices of their peers, Sitaraman and Warren reveal the monumental challenge our leaders face in reconnecting with the youth of America. Is there a politician out there willing to rise to the test?" -Ceci Connolly, The Washington Post
