The Corrosion of Character: The personal consequences of work in the new capitalism
This work describes, explains and warns Europe against following the road already taken by the US and, perhaps not quite irreversibly, Britain by providing an account of life in high-risk, low-loyalty workplaces.
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
