Description

Kenneth Schneider's achievement . . . is to have written a highly intelligent book that is at the same time both stimulating and readable---a rare occurrence. Overall, this is one of the most thought-provoking books that I have read on our modern business-created society and the individual's place within this society."R. Joseph Monsen"University of WashingtonIt is a very good book indeed. . .Schneider has managed to choose most of the basic issues confronting our political order: these are the issues people ought to be thinking about. He has also managed to infuse each one with a high ethical content---something quite rare in the ordinary approach to these topics. The result is a serious, informed discussion that often achieves the level of what in olden times was honorably known as 'practical philosophy.' . . . There is an inarticulate demand for just this sort of thing."Harvey Wheeler"Center for the Study of Democratic InstitutionsThe book reflects the author's unusual breadth of interest and reading, and his uncommon ability to synthesize. His topic is significant. . . . He also shows insight into some complex and important problems. I was especially impressed by his reflections on the notion of community."Raymond Baumhart, S. J."
