The world is changing fast, and our values with it. The old obsession with sex and private life obscured urgent moral issues: how money and power are exercised by big business and governments. Protests against global capitalism, mounting concern about green issues and the environment, and a growing awareness of poverty, the arms trade and human rights abuses have come together to form a potent challenge to the old moral order.
In this passionate argument for a new ethical agenda, uncoupled from traditional morality and religion, Joan Smith charts the aspirations of those who seek to create a different kind of society: one based not on coercion but on respect.
