Reviews

This wonderful book shows us how democracies thrive -- Steven Levitsky & Daniel Ziblatt, authors of How Democracies Die Fantastic ... both idealistic and, in its myriad examples, pragmatic, and delightfully readable -- Rebecca Solnit, author of Men Explain Things to Me This book is full of hope, which is all the more striking because Klinenberg is a realist. He is a major social thinker, and this is a beautifully written, major book -- Richard Sennett, author of The Craftsman An important book for our difficult age. In very unequal societies, where the social fabric has been torn apart, it is vitally important to bring people together. Eric Klinenberg shows us how this can be done -- Kate Pickett, co-author of The Spirit Level and The Inner Level An essential book, about some of the most important aspects of modern living -- Renzo Piano, architect of the Pompidou Centre and the Shard
