There is widespread cynicism regarding the conduct of politicians and the performance of government and this cynicism has increased while conventional forms of political participation have declined. Undoubtedly, one word has dominated the political period since the late 1990s - trust. But what does it mean to trust others? What role does trust play in civic society? How can we explore it across countries? What has happened to trust of government in Britain and what does this mean for citizen-government relations? This book addresses all of these questions and more in a way that will challenge and engage students, scholars, and thinkers across the social sciences.
