From Our Editors

In this survey of political participation in seven nations--Nigeria, Austria, Japan, India, the Netherlands, Yugoslavia, and the United States--the authors examine the relationship between social, economic, and educational factors and political participation. They define four common types of political participation: campaigning activity, voting activity, communal activity, and particularized contact.
