AMERICAN GRACE: How Religion Is Reshaping Our Civic and Political Lives by David Campbell and Robert D. Putnam, will be published in 2010.

THE SAGUARO SEMINAR: CIVIC ENGAGEMENT IN AMERICA is an ongoing initiative of Professor Robert D. Putnam at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The project focuses on expanding what we know about our levels of trust and community engagement and on developing strategies and efforts to increase this engagement. A signature effort was the multi-year dialogue (1995-2000) on how we can increasingly build bonds of civic trust among Americans and their communities. We are currently in the midst of longer-term research projects on the inter-relation of workplace policies and practices on social capital on- and off-the-job, on the relationship between social capital, diversity and equality, and on religion and public life.
