This publication is based on the results of project research and is aimed at being more than just a volume of studies by individual authors. The introductory, theoretical chapter, devoted to a discussion of concepts of research on social solidarity (J. Šafr, M. Sedláčková, (with a supplement by P. Machonin)), is followed by a series of empirically based studies that deal successively with how social solidarity is interpreted by the Czech public (J. Šafr), values (O. Špaček) and norms (L. Gatnar and M. Tuček) in relation to social solidarity, the perception of social justice (M. Tuček), opinion cleavages (chapters by P. Machonin and I. Bayer respectively), and interpersonal trust (M. Sedláčková), and the issue of electoral participation (P. Machonin) in connection with solidarity.
