This edited work brings together top social scientists to examine the nature and quality of democratic citizenship from the perspective of political psychology. While scholars in political science, psychology, and mass communications have contributed to our understanding of democratic citizenship, they concentrate on very different dimensions of citizenship. The current volume challenges this fragmentary pattern of inquiry across different research traditions and provides interdisciplinary insights into the political psychology of democratic citizenship. It takes an interdisciplinary orientation as well as a unique approach to the study of citizenship based on theory and research in political psychology
