Building a Relational Society (Edited by Nicola Baker. Arena, 1996)

Building a Relational SocietyWriters in this unique collection of essays, from their very different walks of life, challenge the neglect of our relationships. Drawing together evidence from pyschology, economics and commerce, sociology and theology, the authors demonstrate the costs of neglecting human relationships. They urge a new approach to finding solutions to the problems of urban decay, industrial relations, divorce and family conflict by adopting a more relational public policy focus. The authors include A.H. Halsey,  John Monks, Clive Mather, Ceridwen Roberts and Shirley Dex.
