Back Cover:

Can we raise our children to be "citizens of the world" in a culture that is competitive, violent, and careless about the future? Writing from his own family experiences, Michael True explores how global values--a committment to the earth and a spirit of solidarity with others--can take root in the home.

True looks at the effects of television and mass culture, their promotion of greed and violence, and the increasing economic gap between rich and poor. Our homes, he says, should reflect a different culture--where pluralism is respected, conflicts and resolved without violence, and a sense fo community, justice, and sacredness of life are nourished.
