Summary
Engaging Strangers: Civil Rites, Civic Capitalism, and Public Order in Boston by Daniel J. Monti, Jr. explores how the people of Boston have learned to practice a more congenial and respectful set of civic virtues. Monti provides a model for civic conduct for the rest of America to study and follow, showing how the cultural ideals we share and the civic-minded practices we follow in and out of the business world reflect a mix of liberal and conservative values that work for all of us
