Prelude : the politics of the brokenhearted -- Democracy's ecosystem -- Confessions of an accidental citizen -- Heart of politics -- Loom of democracy -- Life in the company of strangers -- Classrooms and congregations -- Safe space for deep democracy -- Unwritten history of the heart.
Palmer explores the dynamics of American politics, sifting the dynamics of Americans' inner lives for clues to reclaiming our national unity and pointing the way to a politics worthy of the human spirit, rooted in the commonwealth of compassion and creativity still found among "We the People." Democracy is a non-stop experiment in the strengths and weaknesses of our political institutions, local communities, and the human heart--its outcome can never be taken for granted. Palmer proposes practical and hopeful ways to learn how to hold the tensions of our differences in a manner that can restore a government "of the people, by the people, for the people." --Adapted from publisher description.
