Praise For…

“In this wide-ranging analysis of various locales where feminists have applied an ethic of care, Barnes convincingly shows the centrality of care in understanding human life and social policy.”
— Joan C. Tronto, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

“Barnes packs a persuasive message in her latest text: care is hard to do. . . . Strengths of this book include plentiful examples from the author’s and others’ research, her careful attention to social justice and global perspectives, and long experience writing about this topic.”
— J. C. Altman, Adelphi University

“It is fascinating for those of us who have participated in the development of care ethics as moral theory, whilst being relatively unfamiliar with day-to-day practice in social work, socially provided care of the disabled, and the like, to see how the theory plays out in an area of application such as that described by Barnes.” 
— Journal of Social Policy
