"'Community Works' is... a buffet of ideas, that provides substantial food for thought about civil society in the United States." Dwayne Walling, Charity Channel- We Review, 6/1/2001
"...a valuable, thoughtful, and surprisingly practical contribution to the debate on one of our most pressing moral questions--the restoration of common civil life." Stephen L. Carter, Yale
"...the best current guide to these elusive but attractive concepts [civil society, mediating structures] and what they promise for our politics and our society." Nathan Glazer, Harvard
"...admirably compressed and cogent essays help us clarify a necessary debate--not about whether American society needs reconstruction, but rather in which directions...full of heartening signs of a maturation that all the contending ideological parties sorely need." Todd Gitlin, NYU
