“Citizenship, Democracy and Higher Education in Europe, Canada and the USA dissects citizenship education at the university, crossing regional boundaries and cultures. … While the compilation of essays and approaches shared in Citizenship, Democracy, and Higher Education is valuable as a whole, some chapters stand out as particularly enlightening for readers who are new to the topic. … the work as a whole is indeed worthwhile, and its completion should be regarded as a success.” (Kathleen A. Tobin, Global Education Review, Vol. 3 (3), 2016)
