About this book
Why are western societies - and particularly Britain - becoming more deeply divided, more violent, more squalid? What traditions can we draw upon to respond to this crisis? Since present politics led by central governments offer scant hope of radical reform, what can be done by those determined to work at a local scale to resist and reverse these trends? Donnison draws on the experience of innovative civic leaders, community activists, local policy-makers and researchers to answer these pressing questions.
