Description

In 1976, in the first edition of this book, Peter Berger and Richard John Neuhaus anticipated the major worldwide project of the 1990s: the renewal of civil society. They showed that such mediating structures as family, neighbourhood, church, and voluntary and civil associations are crucial institutions, whose weakening spells disaster.
