Reviews

"A whirlwind of big ideas. Sennett is a worthy warrior, armed with abundant evidence of our better natures."--Connie Schultz, Washington Post--Connie Schultz "Washington Post "
"I envy any reader coming fresh to Sennett's work. Over four decades, his books have grown, volume by expert, companionable, readable volume, into a comprehensive diagnosis of the ailments of urban life and work, together with a series of hard-headed, historically rooted prescriptions for rescue and reform."--Boyd Tonkin, The Independent--Boyd Tonkin "The Independent "

"This humane work is broad in scope and will be of interest to sociologists, political scientists, and curious readers seeking hope for pursuing a more cooperative society."--Library Journal--Library Journal
"Sennet argues that changes in the 'social triangle . . . of earned authority, mutual respect, and cooperation during a crisis, ' have resulted in an uncooperative character type who is becoming more common in modern society, one who--in search of 'reassuring solidarity amid economic insecurity'--acts according to the 'brutally simple' paradigm of 'us-against-them coupled with you-are-on-your-own.' . . . . Sennett's writing is engaging and he provides an interesting perspective on modern society."--Publishers Weekly--Publishers Weekly
