This book sheds new light on the complexity of today's society, where feelings of chaos and confusion are common. There is discontent among citizens, and an uncertainty and a lack of direction among administrators, managers, and public officials. It seems as though no one has a clear perspective on what is happening to society, and yet... perhaps we have overlooked something? The book delivers a realistic and inspiring picture of a new social order, dealing with identity and rage, values and norms, participation and integration, and law and security. It offers a broad, well-founded, and constructive vision of contemporary society.
