In this timely and provocative anthology of essays, poems and photographs, American college students, representing a wide geographical and political spectrum, speak out about politics and social issues. They provide insights into young voters' views and attitudes on a host of topics including: the war in Iraq, the morality of armed conflict, affirmative action and the draft, gender equality and the place of organized religion in the political arena. This original and ground-breaking collection of works was developed by two undergraduates eager to dispel the commonly held skeptical views about their own peers. They proclaim that this young American generation is far from apathetic--but independent thinking adults!
