Amitai Etzioni's communitarian movement, Lappe's "The Quickening of America" , and a flurry of other activities indicate a new interest in building connections and communities. This edited collection builds on that interest by exploring how individuals become involved and dedicated to caring for others, and the role such care plays in undergirding our civic, ethical, and spiritual traditions.
