Review

John W. Gardner Former Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare The Moral Dimension: Toward A New Economics is at the leading edge of social thought in this country. It may be the most important book of the year.

Alan Lewis Journal of Economic Psychology This is a book I will keep close to my desk and refer to often. It is packed with ideas eloquently expressed, if something new is to happen in economics (i.e., the emergence of a more behavioral, social, psychological economics), because of its wide appeal, this book will rank high among those providing the necessary momentum for change.

Aaron Wildavsky University of California, Berkeley A seminal work that will help change our ideas about how the world works.

Harvey Cox Harvard Divinity School Shows that unless economics and moral values are considered together, we will understand neither. Etzioni has built a sturdy bridge not only between economic theory and the humanities, but between economics and the entire cluster of disciplines that deals with human valuing and choosing. Although he signals some real dangers in continuing to apply outmoded rationalistic models, he also sketches the encouraging vision of a new economics that is once again integrated into a wider human enterprise.

About the Author

Amitai Etzioni, University Professor at George Washington University and Visiting Professor at the Harvard Business School, 1987-89, is the author of numerous books, including The Active Society.

More About the Author

After receiving his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley in 1958, Dr. Amitai Etzioni served as a Professor of Sociology at Columbia University for 20 years; part of that time as the Chairman of the department. He was a guest scholar at the Brookings Institution in 1978 before serving as a Senior Advisor to the White House from 1979-1980. In 1980, Dr. Etzioni was named the first University Professor at The George Washington University, where he is the Director of the Institute for Communitarian Policy Studies. From 1987-1989, he served as the Thomas Henry Carroll Ford Foundation Professor at the Harvard Business School.

Dr. Etzioni served as the president of the American Sociological Association in 1994-95, and in 1989-90 was the founding president of the international Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics. In 1990, he founded the Communitarian Network, a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to shoring up the moral, social and political foundations of society (http://communitariannetwork.org/). He was the editor of The Responsive Community: Rights and Responsibilities, the organization's quarterly journal, from 1991-2004. In 1991, the press began referring to Dr. Etzioni as the 'guru' of the communitarian movement.

Outside of academia, Dr. Etzioni's voice is frequently heard in the media. In 2001, he was named among the top 100 American intellectuals as measured by academic citations in Richard Posner's book, Public Intellectuals: A Study of Decline.

Also in 2001, Dr. Etzioni was awarded the John P. McGovern Award in Behavioral Sciences as well as the Officer's Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. He was also the recipient of the Seventh James Wilbur Award for Extraordinary Contributions to the Appreciation and Advancement of Human Values by the Conference on Value Inquiry, as well as the Sociological Practice Association's Outstanding Contribution Award.

Dr. Etzioni is married and has five sons.
