Harper Collins 1999
A popular ground breaking book that sets out the new vision and values that can form the basis for a more tolerant and compassionate society.
Since the death of Princess Diana and the landslide victory of new Labour, a search for new values has begun. Tolerance, justice, compassion and community are words used more and more today. But what are these values and how can they be practised in schools, homes and the workplace?
In Citizen Virtues David Alton draws on his considerable experience at the forefront of bringing values back into society. In practical, down to earth terms, he spells out how everyone can take part in preserving people’s dignity, caring for the environment and working for a more just and humane world. A world that starts in the local neighbourhood.
