  • Moral Marketsby Nico Stehr

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 65.95

    Nothing affects modern society more than the decisions made in the marketplace, especially (but not only) the judgments of consumers.

    Social surveillance and regulation of knowledge will be one of the most important issues in the near future, one that will give rise to unending controversy.
