An Immodest Agenda: Rebuilding America Before the Twenty-First Century
An Immodest Agenda: Rebuilding America Before the Twenty-First Century
By Amitai Etzioni
McGraw-Hill, 1982, 432 pp

This interesting book by a sociologist who spent some time in the Carter Administration is at its best in discussing how "mutuality" and "civility" can be restored to American society, and why they are essential. Its prescription for economic rebuilding, though rooted in an interesting historical analysis, is fairly conventional and conservative.
