do we challenge our culture's pervasive cynicism? Paul Loeb presents an
alternative vision of hope and courage.
Based on thirty years studying the psychology of social involvement, Loeb
describes how ordinary citizens can make their voices heard and their actions

explores what leads some people to get involved in larger community issues while
