The Craftsman ! was published in 2008. He is the author of many celebrated books including The Fall of Public Man ! Flesh and Stone and The Corrosion of Character . Zusammenfassung Living with people who differ - racially, ethnically, religiously or economically - is one of the most urgent challenges facing civil society. This book argues that co-operation needs more than good will: it is a craft that requires skill. It explores the nature of co-operation, why it has become weak and how it can be strengthened....


As challenging and demanding as cooperation is, it has been our species' secret weapon, and those of us alive today are the descendants of people who had what it takes to make it work. This thoughtful book outlines the craftsmanship we will need to ensure that it continues to do so Mark Pagel New Scientist
