Trust is foundational to people's lives in contemporary societies, a fact sharply highlighted by recent practices associated with the financial markets, international security, science and technology, marketing and public relations, and even more pervasively and ever-presently in the delivery, for example, of health and welfare services, in educational policy and practice, in legal processes, and in the public and private arenas of political and religious institutions. Discourses of Trust presents invited chapters from leading practitioners and researchers exploring how Trust and misTrust are discursively constructed across key social and professional domains. The thesis of this volume is that Trust-related and Trust-bearing issues are central to our understanding of how the conduct of professional practices impacts on human relationships in social life.
