I hope that Illingworth's case for the importance of social capital, and especially global social capital, will be widely read and highly influential.' - Peter Singer, Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University, USA 'All truly great leaders in other words, those who care about people will find the ideas in Us Before Me central to how they frame their local and global responsibilities.
