From the Back Cover:

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.

Just what are these values and how can they be practised in schools, homes and the workplace? 'Healthy communities', writes David Alton, 'are not founded on a mixture of rights, entitlements and individual choice, but need to be balanced by an awareness of civic duties, personal responsibilities and community obligations.'

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 being responsible, ethical, discerning, confident and active citizens – 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.

Synopsis:
Since the death of Princess Diana and the victory of new Labour, a search for new values has begun. Tolerance, justice, compassion and community are words used more often in the late 1990s. But what are these values and how can they be practised in schools, home and the workplace? In this text the author 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.
