To many, the crises of 2011 were symptomatic of a greater imbalance. From the London riots to the Occupy Wall Street movement, the unrest of last year, says author and psychotherapist Eve Linn, points to a common social ill – the absence of respect.

In her new book “RE-spect: Who Deserves It?” (published by Balboa Press), Linn explores what respect means, how one experiences it and how one processes its absence, while inviting the reader to follow a holistic view of a societal paradigm shift from pre-industrial to modern times.

“Is the apparent lack of respect for property and dignity of others a symptom of a more insidious disease afflicting humanity? Has respect become an endangered quality in humanity?” Linn explores these questions and more in this thoughtful analysis.

“I also have questioned recent Mother Nature’s increasing violent mood swings, considering this coincidence from a metaphysical level of understanding us as a human species in the world in which we live,” says Linn. “In the last chapter I am offering some simple educational measures to bring us back to value respect for our environment, of assets, properties, neighbors, colleagues, authorities and last but not least respect of the self.”

While this exploration of respect is unconventional, Linn makes clear both its personal and global effects, calling her approach a “holistic and chronological perspective.”

“Whilst this book offers a common sense and an enlightening approach to present and forthcoming challenges on personal, national and global levels,” explains Linn, “it explores equally the global concern on respect versus disrespect and gives the reader an unconventional side of how regaining core values of humanity can be once again achieved.”
