MEDIA REVIEWS

"Sociology has a moral purpose and one aspect of that purpose is to create a 21st century version of a recently neglected topic, a sociology of the good. This excellent book does exactly that. It focuses on developing valid knowledge of altruism, morality, and social solidarity, including identifying pathological conditions and exploring preferable alternatives, each of which will help in formulating action plans for the common good of society. For today's sociologists, this inspiring book is a must-read." - Wendell Bell, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, and Fellow, Koerner Center, Yale University, USA

"A provocative foray designed to jumpstart an emerging subfield the authors call Altrusim, Morality, and Solidarity, this colorful work offers fresh views of personhood, identity dynamics, standard setting in organizations, philanthropy, and the evolutionary benefits of altruism. Beyond Durkheim, it also retrieves neglected understandings of Lev Tolstoy, Jane Addams and Pitirim Sorokin." - Donald N. Levine, Peter B. Ritzma Professor Emeritus, University of Chicago
