Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Presents a case for a society of mutual respect, recounting the author's experiences of growing up in Chicago's Cabrini Green housing project, proposing welfare system improvements, and citing the consequences of disrespectful behaviors in today's competitive society.


Review:

"What we need is not the philosophical elaboration of ideas about respect but an imaginative sociological exploration of respect-threatening and respect-enhancing situations. This is what Richard Sennett does well, and RESPECT [IN A WORLD OF INEQUALITY] is at its best when it blends personal narrative and moral rumination."

Alan Ryan, New York Review of Books, 02/27/2003

Book Description: WW Norton Co, United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 211 x 142 mm. Brand New Book. As various forms of social welfare were dismantled through the last decade of the 20th century, many thinkers argued that human well-being was best served by a focus on potential, not need. Richard Sennett disagrees. In this fusion of personal memoir and reflective scholarship, he addresses the need and social responsibility across the gulf of inequality. In the uncertain world of flexible social relationships, all are troubled by issues of respect: whether it is an employee stuck with insensitive management, a social worker trying to aid a resentful client, or a virtuoso artist and an accompanist aiming for a perfect duet.
