Home, not only where the heart is but where society begins

Print Share
Given the universal importance of the home, it may come as a surprise that the first major work to take the home as a center of analysis for global social problems has only now been published. The Home: Multidisciplinary Reflections, published last month in the UK by Edward Elgar, is a project of the London based Home Renaissance Foundation. In it, experts from a variety of fields reveal the multidimensional reality of the home and its role in societies worldwide. In the following email interview, the editor, economist Antonio Argandoña, answers MercatorNet's questions about the nature of the book and its relevance to current social issues.
