"Basic good manners have become a casualty of our postmodern culture. Yale law professor and social critic Stephen L. Carter argues that civility is disintegrating because we have forgotten the obligations we owe to each other, and are awash instead in a sea of self-indulgence. Neither liberals nor conservatives can help us much, Carter explains, because each political movement, in a different way, exemplifies what has become the principal value of modern America: that what matters most is not the needs or hopes of others, but simply getting what we want."--BOOK JACKET. "Taking inspiration from the Abolitionist sermons of the nineteenth century, Carter proposes to rebuild our public and private lives around the fundamental rule that we must love our neighbors, a tenet of all the world's great religions. Writing with his familiar combination of erudition and wit, Carter examines the ways in which an ethic of neighbor-love would alter everything from our political campaigns to our fast food outlets to the information superhighway, from the way we behave in the workplace to the way we drive our cars to the way we argue about constitutional rights."--BOOK JACKET. "He investigates many of the fundamental institutions of society - including the family, the churches, and the schoolsand illustrates how each one must do more to promote the virtue of civility."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

Very inspiring take on our society's urgent need for civility from an intelligent and articulate law professor. I highly recommend this book. (Yes! Believe it or not, a book on civility written by a lawyer! LOL) And that snide, side comment, Carter might say, is the very type of thing that undermines our world. Sorry. Apologies to all lawyers. No more sarcasm. No more cynicism. ( )
