About the Author:

James A. Vela-McConnell is Associate Professor of Sociology at Augsburg College. He is one of the authors of What’s Left? Radical Politics in the Postcommunist Era.

Review:

Bold in conception, breathtaking because of the range of writing it draws together, scrupulously careful in execution, and elegantly parsimonious in its explanation, Professor Vela-McConnell has written a book that is at once deeply satisfying intellectually and hugely valuable to anyone interested in linking theory to public policy. All whose political and moral sensibilities lie in the direction of maximizing a sense of neighborliness in the immediate social context of our lives, within the boundaries of the United States, and in our increasingly global village should read this book. from the Foreword by David Karp"
