Synopsis

Us Before Me Ethics and Social Capital for Global Well-Being by Patricia Illingworth

Patricia Illingworth's short, powerful and passionate book argues that social capital should be an essential ethical concept guiding our actions, and explains how one might go about implementing this idea in a positive way.

Reviews

'Us Before Me is a timely and thoughtful book. 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. Illingworth has made an important link between thinking, feeling and acting that provides a leap forward for leaders to effect changes that help solve human problems in our organizations, communities, countries and world.' - Nancy Dearman, Chief Executive Officer, Kotter International'
