Book description

This book promotes a relational understanding of the self. It explores how law can be transformed by focusing on the promotion and protection of caring relationships, rather than individual rights. This offers a radical and profound re-imagining of what law is about and what it should be trying to do. It moves from the theoretical into offering practical examples of how the law could be developed to enhance relationships, rather than undermine them.


'The book is a beautiful exercise in reconsidering conventions regarding the distribution of power and benefits (focusing on caregivers), and what is ‘normal’ in law and life. In many ways, this book is a true credo, suggesting a new socio-legal theory and making it incumbent upon the readers to strive for a more decent and caring reality. The reader could not have imagined such a reality before starting this journey and cannot shake it once completing the book.’
