What's happening to our sense of community? Even though humans are social animals who need interaction and a sense of belonging to survive, we have created a society -- in the industrialized countries at least -- where people are often too busy to build the kind of communities they say they long for. Women, in particular, feel they lack time to develop the relationships that make a community grow. In COMMUNITY ANIMALS, some of today's leading thinkers, such as author Alan Durning, social historian Stephanie Coontz, Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez of the New Road Map Foundation, and Sarah van Gelder, editor of YES! A Journal of Positive Futures, explore fundamental questions of work, time, values, change and how we will live together in the next millennium.
