A new book published by the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) takes a look at the AmeriCorps national service program after it’s 10th anniversary. The work is a compilation of short chapters from authors with a variety of perspectives. Some of the more interesting work includes an empirical analysis of whether AmeriCorps has met its goals, progress reports on national service in the U.S. and in other nations, and opinion pieces on questions related to the future of national service.
All chapters from the book are available for free if you download them as individual PDFs at the PPI website. There is a brief description of the book’s contents on the PPI website and another on the New Democrats website.
