Promoting care, a sense of personal responsibility for the welfare of others, is one of society's primary moral challenges. A caring society is one in which care penetrates all major social institutions including the family, schools, places of work, and worship. The purpose of this book is to present pragmatic guidelines for individuals and groups who want to enhance the caring quality of the social institutions in which they participate. The authors propose principles whereby care can be infused in routine contexts and give real-life examples to illustrate how they have been successfully applied in a variety of social settings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A very important book about a moral foundation of our future: being able to walk in the other's shoes (or to have empathy). A book for educators, parents, and all concerned--caring people."- Amitai Etzioni University Professor, The George Washington University author of The Spirit of Community founder of The Communitarian Network
"The Oliners have given us a comprehensive, practical guide toward building caring institutions. Using many fascinating real-life accounts, they show what can be done when individuals and groups respond to the common human desire for care. Essential reading for a troubled and violent society."- Nel Noddings Lee Jacks Professor of Education, Stanford University
"A bold mixture of developmental and social psychology with real-life experiences in education, business, and politics. The authors present actual cases of caring procedures that have worked, together with an analysis of the basic psychodynamic factors that encourage caring behavior. Calling upon competences in such diverse areas as moral education, conflict resolution, corporate ethics, and global thinking, this book, which reads fluently, is a major source for dealing with sexism, racism, and institutional tensions in a caring, just, and global manner."-David R. Blumenthal Jay and Leslie Cohen Professor of Judaic Studies, Emory University
