Summary
"Running from Office is the first analysis of young people's political ambition, based on a national poll of over 4000 high school and college students. It has been well-documented that political socialization begins early in life, but this will be the first consideration of the way that political socialization influences political ambition among youth. In it, the authors delve into how young people view political figures, what traits they see as necessary for political success, and how they view their own suitability to run for office. Lawless and Fox also consider how the attitudes of older generations condition young people's political ambition, as well as how ambition varies according to factors including gender, race, religion, geographic region and income (finding that gender is the only significant factor). In addition to their own research, they leverage public opinion data about young people's attitudes toward government, trust in politicians and political institutions, and patterns of civic engagement to demonstrate declines over time. But their message does not end with hand-wringing - importantly the authors provide suggestions based on their own survey data and evidence that can be used to generate heightened levels of political ambition among today's young people, including better governance, civic education, voluntary community and national service programs, and political and media campaigns geared to mobilize young people"--
