Open Societies with their Ethical Standards in disarray are an endangered species. The shortage of Ethics and honesty is an urgent problem confronting government, business, academia, and every citizen of India-indeed, in all western democracies. In this volume The Author discusses the ethical challenges we must meet. Bribery, kickbacks, all kinds of illegal payoffs, and assorted crimes have been making News headlines with increasing regularity. It is beneficial that the Press reveals what is destructive of society. It is absurd that politicians and educations, big Business and little business, Labour and Religious leaders, rich people and poor-all of us, with no great number of exceptions-are standing by watching this flood of corruption rise and rise to lap at the Foundation of our freedoms. That's why the author has published this book. The author is specialist in his field and writes clearly and simply. It's fascinating to read what the author says on the principles of reciprocity and gift-giving, about mal-adaptation and adaptation in social systems. Note what the author reports concerning the Relationship of honesty to the viability of private Enterprise economies, as to ethics and Law among unequals. Big business executives should read this book right along with their Financial statements because ethics and honesty, government regulation, and profits have now become quite vexingly tied together. They will want to read what the author says about ethicalising capitalism. Chamber of Commerce, trade and Professional associations, libraries, schools, especially the graduate professional schools, should have this volume as a reference. Service clubs that have long advocated better ethics should welcome this source of support. And the author hopes that community Leaders will read this book and join with him to help strengthen the ethical underpinning so essential to the economic and Political freedoms of our society.
