Editorial Reviews


"Sedgwick is clear and well organized, developing a nuanced argument in dialog with important interlocutors. Recommended for upper-division undergraduates, graduates and faculty." Choice

"[Sedgwick] provides a masterful interweaving of diverse scholarship on the ways that contemporary patterns of consumption and work effect personal identity." Christian Century

"...the author approaches each set of surveyed ideas judiciously and rejects the easy procedure of trumping philosophy and social science with theological claims. Hist study might therefore be useful to graduate students in search of a thesis or scholars in search of a topically integrated literature review." Religious Studies Review

Book Description

In this book Peter Sedgwick explores the relation of a theology of justice to that of human identity in the context of the market economy. He focuses on three main themes: how the market economy shapes personal identity, through consumption and the experience of paid employment in relation to the work ethic; the impact of the global economy on local cultures; and the effects of technology and global competition on poverty. Sedgwick recommends that the churches remain part of the debate in reforming and humanising the market economy.
