The Cheating Culture
Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get AheadBook - 2004
While there have always been those who cut corners, the author shows that cheating on every level--from the highly publicized corporate scandals to Little League fraud--has risen dramatically in the last two decades. Why all the cheating? Why now? Callahan pins the blame on the dog-eat-dog economic climate of the past two decades. An unfettered market and unprecedented economic inequality have corroded our values, he argues--and ultimately threaten the level playing field so central to American democracy itself. Through revealing interviews and extensive data, he takes us on a gripping tour of cheating in America and offers a powerful argument for why it matters.--From publisher description.
