In this sequel to his influential work "The Craftsman," Sennett explores how we can learn to cooperate in the intensely tribal, competitive, and self-interested cultures we inhabit.
From the Publisher:
Discusses why people tend to avoid social engagement with those unlike themselves, why increased cooperation is necessary to make society prosper, and the skills necessary for strengthening cooperation.
Author Bio
Richard Sennett
Sociologist and public intellectual Richard Sennett grew up IN Chicago, and lived for a time in the famous Cabrini Green housing projects. Sennett received his B.A. in history from the University of Chicago in 1964, and, in 1969, his Ph.D. from Harvard University, where he studied under the distinguished sociologist David Riesman. Sennett was a speechwriter for Eugene McCarthy's 1968 campaign. He has long been associated with New York University, has lectured at major universities in Paris, London, and Rome, and was a founder of the New York Institute for the Humanities. A frequent contributor to the New York Review of Books, where he has written on cities, culture, and issues of work and class, Sennett is associated with the concept of respect, as reflected in the title of one of his books, RESPECT IN A WORLD OF INEQUALITY. Richard Sennett has an interest in classical music, plays the cello, and has written several novels, including AN EVENING OF BRAHMS. He has been married to fellow scholar Saskia Sassen, author of THE GLOBAL CITY.

Praise

"Sennett wants to alter the course of rising tribalism, which he defines as coupling 'solidarity with others like yourself to aggression against those who differ.' A mammoth undertaking, to be sure, but he is a worthy warrior, armed with abundant evidence of our better natures." - Connie Schultz 01/29/2012
