In this provocative book Richard Sennett looks at the ways todayâ€™s global, ever-mutable form of capitalism is affecting our lives. He analyzes how changes in work ethic, in our attitudes toward merit and talent, and in public and private institutions have all contributed to what he terms â€œthe specter of uselessness,â€ and he concludes with suggestions to counter this disturbing new culture.
