Relationships are at the core of our being. Yet all around us, at home, on our streets, in our places of work, we see relationships fragmenting.
Writers in this unique collection, from their very different walks of life, challenge the neglect of our relationships. Drawing together evidence from psychology, 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.
