Community Works by E. J. Dionne

Book Description

This book explores the quest for community at the turn of the century. It examines why the idea of civil society has become so popular and why so much hope has been invested in the voluntary sector. It also underscores the importance of a vital civil society and disputes the notion that our yearning for a reinvigorated civic life is a form of nostalgia. E. J. Dionne, Jr. puts the debate in perspective and outlines some of the arguments emanating from Right, Left, and Center about what to make of these important mediating community structures. With chapters by renowned scholars, journalists, and policymakers, this book contemplates where successful civic action originates and considers the role played by faith-based organizations in the battle against poverty and neighborhood decline.

Our Divided Political Heart by E. J. Dionne Our Divided Political Heart, Paperback (July 2013)

"Tea Partiers and Occupiers alike may be surprised and enlightened by this lucid analysis, all the more convincing for its sympathetic treatment of both sides of the argument."-Publishers Weekly

God's Economy by E. J. Dionne God's Economy, Hardback (November 2009)

Reveals that virtually all of the critics, as well as many supporters, have long misunderstood both the true implications of faith-based partnerships and their unique potential for advancing social justice.

Souled Out by E. J. Dionne Souled Out, Paperback (October 2009)

Shows that the end of the Religious Right doesn't signal the decline of evangelical Christianity but rather its disentanglement from a political machine that sold it out to a narrow electoral agenda of such causes as opposition to gay marriage and abortion.

Liberalism for a New Century by E. J. Dionne Liberalism for a New Century, Paperback (June 2007)

Explores such topics as the classical liberal tradition, postmodernism's challenge to the American 'Enlightenment', the civil rights era, the influence of twentieth-century radicals on American liberalism, the 1950s, tolerance, the cold war, and whether liberalism should have a large and aggressive vision.
