For decades now, Americans have turned either to government or to the economic marketplace for solutions to public problems. In this search for an elixir, we have largely ignored the so-called third sector - the realm of civil society - which has been deteriorating at an alarming rate. The Civil Society Project aims to reverse this trend by promoting a recovery of the non-governmental institutions of American society as the indispensable foundation of public virtue and democratic competence.
