Turning A Political Hobby Into Real Power


"Political hobbyism?"  Is that what you're doing, if you vote regularly, attend the occasional rally, and consume political news? 

Could be, says political scientist Eitan Hersh.  He works to convert political hobbyists into more active and engaged citizens, in his book Politics Is for Power: How to Move Beyond Political Hobbyism, Take Action, and Make Real Change.  The author lays out a vision and a plan in the book, and describes them in this visit to The Exchange.
