Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is a copiously referenced, reasoned, articulate exploration into the sources of societies' guidelines for citizens in modern liberal democracies when responding to perceived obligations, both intimate and distant. Wolfe highlights the paradox of lessening agreement on authority for setting moral rules at a time when awareness of humanity's reciprocal responsibilities is growing. He argues that, in modern civil societies, individuals possess freedom (responsiblity?) to create together a civil morality which will function alongside the self-interest-oriented authority of market (e.g., the U.S.) and public welfare-state rationale (Scandinavia), infusing a human factor with the potential to balance meeting obligations for both intimate and distant others. Sociology's role can be to instruct and support this endeavor. Recommended for university level and above.
