Book Description:
This book addresses a range of questions concerning the nature of contemporary social bonds based on work carried out in conjunction with the 'European Values System Study Group'. Questions asked include: How extensively do we trust social institutions, ourselves and others? Do we enjoy a common life constituted by a shared idea of commonly valued goods and valued futures? How far do 'family' and 'religion' contribute to our view of present obligation and of a preferred future? The author points out that to talk about 'we' and 'our' is easy, but a comparison of surveys made in 1981 and 1990 enables us to question such apparent solidarity. While discussion of 'values' can easily slide into high mindedness, the wide ranging questionnaire used in the 1990 study on which this book is based, tells us a great deal about the public doctrine of ordinary people in Britain and about the extent to which they participate in the same world of ideas and belong to each other.
