Product Description

Review

"As citizens become more individualistic and less collective, so neighbourhood ties are weakened. This book shows how the weakening of communities is related to the weakening of respect." --Bob Holman<br /><br />"This book will make you think again about the subtleties and complexities of community life. It offers cogent and well-evidenced explanations of how informal interactions at local level affect people s relationships and quality of life. The authors thoughtful, yet practical approach supplies the reader with plenty of ideas for actions and policies that could make a real difference for generations to come." -- Alison Gilchrist, Community Development Foundation<br /><br />"At a time when the debate about Respect is becoming ever more esoteric on the one hand and politically loaded on the other, here is a book which not only offers an astute analysis of the nature and effects of respect , as it is lived out in the day to day lives of ordinary people, but also points to ways in which it might be sustained and, even more ambitiously, restored. " --Professor John Pitts, Editor of the Community Safety Journal.

"The approach suggested by Harris seems to point at an important factor. If people want stability, order, informal social networks, then they need 'engaged formality'... This might force us to stress the necessity of combining neighbourliness with the strongest possible democratic participation." --European Journal of Social Work
