The Silent Revolution:
Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council

(Terrace Press, 2003). Paperback, 103 pages.

Price: $5.95

This is a new edition of the original 1968 classic, The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council, for which Kent Keith wrote the Paradoxical Commandments. Keith was 19, a sophomore at Harvard, when he wrote the book as a leadership manual for high school student leaders. In The Silent Revolution, Keith encourages high school student leaders to work together, through the system, to achieve positive, lasting change. He believes that student councils can, and should, make a difference. He explains the need to love people, and do what is meaningful and satisfying, whether you get the credit or not. He uses hypothetical stories to describe practical leadership skills and dilemmas, argues that the "good guys" can win, and urges students to take action now. "Don't vegetate," he says. "Initiate."

The Silent Majority:
The Problem of Apathy and the Student Council

By Kent M. Keith
(Terrace Press, 2004). Paperback, 98 pages.

Price: $5.95

add to cart

This is a new edition of the original classic, The Silent Majority: The Problem of Apathy and the Student Council, that was first shared with high school student leaders at workshops in 1969. Kent M. Keith was 20, a junior at Harvard, when he wrote the book as a companion to his first book, The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council. Keith wrote The Silent Majority for high school student leaders who want to give the student council its noblest meaning and purpose: people helping people. Keith argues that no one is completely apathetic–everyone is interested in something. It's up to student leaders to find out what their fellow students are interested in, and then link up with those interests. In the process, student leaders will learn more about themselves, and discover the richness of life that is available to those who become "people people."
