              There has been a trend among public policy analysts to disavow the value of Western political tradition for understanding contemporary social dilemmas. This collection of essays aims to demonstrate that the history of political philosophy actually increases awareness of the natur...e of such problems.

              A Place for Us: How to Make Society Civil and Democracy Strong (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In our crowded, noisy world--too many people, too much crime, too many wars, not enough time--it seems almost impossible to locate and preserve the common ground where a civil society might flourish. Whatever happened to the civic virtue and community life that nourished true dem...ocracy? In this provocative, hard-hitting book, political scientist Benjamin Barber tackles these questions head-on and, in answering them, retrieves the ideals of civil society from the nostalgists who want to re-create old-fashioned (and discriminatory) small communities and from the free-marketeers who associate it with unfettered commercial activity. Commentators have been making a fashion of civil society, but they tend to mean many different things by the phrase: this bracingly clear book shows how diverse the various notions are and how best to think about them. Barber proposes practical strategies for making civil society real, for civilizing public discourse and promoting civic debate, and for affirming values beyond those of work and leisure, commerce and bureaucracy.
