The two strands of current debate dealt with in this chapter — Social Capital and Trust — are conjoined here because they represent a conservative, political and theoretical reaction to the over arching post 60s issue of social cohesion. Additionally, they present themselves in limited terms: terms concerned mainly with aspects of micro sociality. In contrast the Chapter 3 deals with Third Way and Communitarian advocates, who, while fundamentally conservative in orientation, also present a far wider project which, in both instances, seeks a fundamentally new type of ethical and political space.
