Topic: Civic Activity and Reading

10-second review: “Increased civic activity enhances trust [in society] by increasing book reading and reducing heavy TV use.”

Title: “Building Social Capital in Young People: The Role of Mass Media and Life Outlook.” D Romer, KH Janieson, and J Pasek. Political Communication, 26 (2), 65-82, 2009.

Comment: Suggests that an active involvement in civic activities leads to more reading and less TV. I wonder. RayS.
