Publisher Comments:

a volume in Research on International Civic EngagementSeries Editors Erik Bergrud, Park Universityand Kaifeng Yang, Florida State UniversityThe Pew Charitable Trusts defines civic engagement as Individual and collective actions designedto identify and address issues of public concern. Civic engagement can take many forms, fromindividual volunteerism to organizational involvement to electoral participation. It can includeefforts to directly address an issue, work with others in a community to solve a problem or interactwith the institutions of representative democracy. Civic engagement encompasses a range ofactivities such as working in a soup kitchen, serving on a neighborhood association, writing a letterto an elected official or voting.While publications on civic engagement have increased in recent years, there are some limitations or unfilled needs: (1) There is a lackof international perspectives; (2) There is a lack of management focus; (3) There are increasing demands on publications regardingonline civic engagement; (4) They tend to be fragmented in individual disciplines such as Nonprofit management, political science, public administration, and sociology. We need a cross-disciplinary approach.Significant features: (1) Each book will have an international focus with contributions from around the world. It stimulates the sharingof experiences across countries. (2) Each book will focus on one cutting-edge topic that has not been carefully addressed in theliterature. (3) Emphasizing the integration of research and practice, each book will provide both advanced research studies andinnovative best practices. (4) Addressing both offline and online civic engagement. (5) A management focus so that books willprovide practitioners insights on how to improve their managerial practices that relate to civic engagement.
