Civility in an English Village.
Stephens, William
The English town of Clevelode, population of approximately 700, has solved most of the U.S. social problems. The village is not perfect, but in many ways it stands as a lesson for everyone. This small community is probably fairly temporary. People can live in Clevelode and commute to work in the city of Worcester or to the urban center of Malvern. The small community described in this book seems to be on its way to becoming a suburb of Worcester. The book, a study of the inner workings of a humane society today, is divided into 19 chapters: (1) "History and Geographic Setting"; (2) "What We'll Do"; (3) "Our Village and Its Setting"; (4) "Newcomers to the Village"; (5) "The Children"; (6) "Schools and the School Code"; (7) "Personal Traits"; (8) "The Dampening Conflict"; (9) "A Nonviolent Society"; (10) "Trust"; (11) "The Moral Substructure"; (12) "Caring for the Elderly"; (13) "The Doctors"; (14) "Arthur and Brian: Taking Care of Other People as Part of Your Job"; (15) "Neighbors"; (16) "Taking Care of Animals"; (17) "Jam and Jerusalem: Voluntary Groups and Charity Appeals"; (18) "Charity"; and (19) "Small-Community Effects?" (Each chapter includes notes. Contains a methodological appendix and 129 references.) (BT)
