Reviews

"This book examines various legal strictures informing the establishment of ongoing residency when living in dormitory housing, which may prove helpful for students with practical concerns.The volume concludes with ongoing assertions that we as a society must further lower the age-based requirement for democratic participation to sixteen. Confronting that sometimes fallacious logic will help students understand the structural limitations to participation in the political process. Supplementary materials include a chronological appendix of court cases related to the amendment; books, journal articles, and online resources for further information; and a thorough alphabetical index. Recommended for school and public libraries, as the constitutional amendment and its related concepts are not likely to be covered as thoroughly elsewhere. -- Reference Unbound, February 2010
