New Book - The Culture of the new capitalism

Richard Sennett
The Culture of the new capitalism
Yale University Press, 2006, 306.36 SEN

Distinguished MIT sociologist Richard Sennett surveys the major differences between earlier forms of industrial capitalism and the more global version that is evident today. Sennett illustrates how our work ethic is changing, how new beliefs about merit and talent are displacing old values of craftsmanship and achievement, and how the boundary between consumption and politics is steadily diminishing.
