Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A distinguished MIT sociologist surveys major differences between earlier forms of industrial capitalism and the more global version that is evident today to illustrate how the work ethic is changing, new beliefs about merit and talent are displacing old values of craftsmanship and achievement, and how the boundary between consumption and politics is dissolving.


Review:

"To write a general history of Montenegro today, therefore, is to enter some very contested ground, where old historical quarrels have been reactivated by modern political ones. The task, especially when undertaken by an outsider, requires bravery, independent-mindedness, and a cool head. Elizabeth Roberts...has those qualities, combined with a gift for the lucid explanation of complicated matters. In putting together a history of Montenegro from the Roman Empire to the 2006 referendum, she has performed a huge service for English-speaking readers."

Noel Malcolm, New York Review of Books, 12/06/2007
