Synopsis

Americans

now face a caring deficit: there are simply too many demands on people's time

for us to care adequately for our children, elderly people, and ourselves.At the same time, political involvement in

the United States is at an all-time low, and although political life should

help us to care better, people see caring as unsupported by public life and

deem the concerns of politics as remote from their lives. Caring Democracy argues that we need to rethink American democracy,

as well as our fundamental values and commitments, from a caring perspective. What

it means to be a citizen is to be someone who takes up the challenge: how

should we best allocate care responsibilities in society?

Joan Tronto argues that we need to

look again at how gender, race, class, and market forces misallocate caring

responsibilities and think about freedom and equality from the standpoint of making

caring more just.The idea that

production and economic life are the most important political and human

concerns ignores the reality that caring, for ourselves and others, should be

the highest value that shapes how we view the economy, politics, and

institutions such as schools and the family. Care is at the center of our human

lives, but Tronto argues it is currently too far removed from the concerns of

politics. Caring Democracy traces the reasons for this disconnection and

argues for the need to make care, not economics, the central concern of

democratic political life.
