Here the former Bishop of Oxford and life peer Richard Harries addresses our concerns by re-examining the roots of our political values. He considers the various strands of thought that have had a bearing on political philosophy over time, such as utilitarianism and liberalism, and argues strongly that a Christian perspective has a distinct part to play in the shaping of our life together, and that rediscovering this perspective can help towards building a better society. This new edition is updated for the 2015 context and includes an immediate response to the result of the Scottish referendum on independence.
