9781847428226: Care in Everyday Life: An Ethic of Care in Practice

The failure to care in 'care services' has been seen as a human rights problem, but care has also been implicated in the oppression of disabled people and demoted in favour of choice in health and social care services. Here, Marian Barnes argues for care as an essential value in private lives and public policies.

About the Author:

Marian Barnes is professor emeritus of social policy at the University of Brighton.

Review:

“In this wide-ranging analysis of various locales where feminists have applied an ethic of care, Barnes convincingly shows the centrality of care in understanding human life and social policy.” (Joan C. Tronto, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities 2012-03-08)

“Barnes packs a persuasive message in her latest text: care is hard to do. . . . Strengths of this book include plentiful examples from the author’s and others’ research, her careful attention to social justice and global perspectives, and long experience writing about this topic.” (J. C. Altman, Adelphi University Choice)

“It is fascinating for those of us who have participated in the development of care ethics as moral theory, whilst being relatively unfamiliar with day-to-day practice in social work, socially provided care of the disabled, and the like, to see how the theory plays out in an area of application such as that described by Barnes.”  (Journal of Social Policy)
