The author, a thinker in critical theory and historical sociology, has
long been concerned with the prospects for freedom and decency in industrial
society. The product of decades of reflection on issues of authority,
inequality and injustice, this volume analyzes fluctuating moral beliefs and
behaviour in political and economic affairs at different points in history,
from the early Middle Ages in England to the prospects for liberalism under
20th-century Soviet socialism. The social sources of antisocial behaviour;
principles of social inequality; and the origins, enemies and possibilities of
rational discussion in public affairs are among the topics Moore considers as
he seeks to uncover the historical causes of some accepted forms of morality
and to assess their social consequences.

The keynote essay examines
how moral codes grew out of commercial practices in England from medieval times
through the industrial revolution. Moore pays special attention to conceptions
of honesty and the temptation to evade that informs the volume as a whole. In
other essays, he considers particular political issues, viewing "political" in
its broadest sense as an unequal distribution of power and authority that
carries a strong moral charge.
