Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Freedom of the Press is more than a slogan journalists use when they want to report a juicy scandal. A free press may put butter on your bread, or even help you get the piece of bread.

Nice guys finish last is a saying that formerly had some validity, but it is becoming less true all the time. Nice guys are now more likely to come out on top.

These ideas emerge from a sociological analysis of how we get the pleasures and satisfactions nearly everyone in the modern world wants. Increasingly, such expectations can be satisfied only if we cooperate with other people--many of whom are very different from ourselves. The complexity of modern societies also requires that more and more people assume specialized roles and that these specialists work together regardless of national, ethnic, religious, or other differences. The future belongs to those who are best at cooperation and conflict resolution.
