Summary
"Marian Barnes argues for care as an essential value in private lives and public policies. She considers the importance of care to well-being and social justice, and applies insights from feminist care ehtics to care work and care within personal relationships. She also looks at 'stranger relationships', how we relate to the places in which we live and the way in which public deliberation about social policy takes place."--Page 4 of cover
