Within the context of the new global order and the recent crises of corporate capitalism, Dr. Blau reasserts the importance of social contracts as a framework for an ethical system which recognizes individual and group differences. She then extends her arguments to discussions of rationality, opportunity structures, organizations and efficiency, social class, and other subjects. Taken as a whole, the author's work will provide a unique perspective, especially in economic and organizational sociology courses.
