Respect: An Exploration

Synopsis

In this stunningly original treasure of a book that reveals the single most powerful ingredient in any relationship, whether personal, professional, or in public life, Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot reaches deep into human experience -- from the drama of birth to the solemn vigil before death -- to find the essence of respect. In her moving vision, respect is not the passive deference offered a superior but an active force that creates symmetry even in unequal relationships. The reader becomes an eyewitness to the empowering nature of respect, both given and received -- be it between doctor and patient, teacher and student, photographer and subject, or midwife and laboring mother. A book to be savored and shared, Respect has the power to change lives.
