We need our neighbors and community to stay healthy, produce jobs, raise our children, and care for those on the margin. Institutions and professional services have reached the limit of their ability to help us.

What we need we must purchase from specialists and systems outside the community, the consumer society tells us, for we are insufficient. Rather than citizens and neighbors, we have become consumers and clients. But authors John McKnight and Peter Block show that we have the capacity to find real and sustainable satisfaction right in our neighborhood and community.

This book reports on voluntary, self-organizing structures that focus on gifts and value hospitality, the welcoming of strangers. McKnight and Block reveal how to reweave our social fabric, especially in our neighborhoods. In this way we collectively have enough to create a future that works for all.
