RUNNING FROM OFFICE by Jennifer Lawless & Richard Fox

July 12, 2015

Jennifer Lawless and Richard Fox spoke about their book, Running From Office, at Politics & Prose on Sunday, July 12, 2015.

With Richard L. Fox, professor of political science at Loyola Marymount, Lawless, professor of government and director of the Women and Politics Institute at American University, explores the growing alienation of young people from politics. Drawing on extensive interviews and surveys of more than 4,000 college and high school students, the book profiles a generation that distrusts politicians yet cares about changing the world; Lawless proposes ways to direct those aspirations into some of the 500,000 elected offices that may otherwise go begging.
