Working Alternatives: American and Catholic Experiments in Work and Economy (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Working Alternatives explores economic life from a humanistic and multidisciplinary perspective, with a particular eye on religions' implications in practices of work, management, supply, production, remuneration, and exchange. Its contributors draw upon historical, ethical, business, and theological conversations considering the sources of economic sustainability and justice.

The essays in this book-from scholars of business, religious ethics, and history-offer readers practical understanding and analytical leverage over these pressing issues. Modern Catholic social teaching-a 125-year-old effort to apply Christian thinking about the implications of faith for social, political, and economic circumstances-provides the key springboard for these discussions.

Contributors: Gerald J. Beyer, Alison Collis Greene, Kathleen Holscher, Michael Naughton, Michael Pirson, Nicholas Rademacher, Vincent Stanley, Sandra Sullivan-Dunbar, Kirsten Swinth, Sandra Waddock
