Review

"Richard Sennett again raised sociology to the realm of art with a wise, funny account of life in our new high-risk, low-loyalty workplaces. Chosen twice as a 1998 book of the year in The Independent -- The Independent

...the one book that engages the heart as well as the mind. One of the New Statesman's economics books of 1998. -- New Statesman

In a succinct essay of rare elegance, Richard Sennett, recent recruit to Anthony Giddens's London School of Economics and sociology professor at New York University, combines the forensic skills of an academic who has a sense of history with those of the social observer of the contemporary scene. -- Financial Times

This beautiful and moving book by one of our finest sociologists describes, explains and warns Europe against following the road already taken by the US and, perhaps not quite irreversibly, by Britain. -- Eric Hobsbawm, New Statesman

[An] erudite and thoughtful book. -- The Times Higher Education Supplement --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Selected as one of The Economist's "very, very best of 1998's books". Winner of the New Perspectives in Social Sciences category of the 1998 European Amalfi Prize for Sociology and Social Sciences. Awarded "Das politische Buch" prize by the Association of Publishers, Booksellers and Librarians at the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
