This book explores the paradoxical nature and the paramount importance of workplace bonds in a diverse democratic society. It stakes a claim for the civic value of the millions of conversations that take place every day among co-workers. It argues for a closer look at the role of law in realizing the democratic possibilities of working together. Workplace interactions are constrained by economic power and necessity, and are circumscribed by a staggering array of governmental regulations. Paradoxically, it is the involuntariness of workplace interactions--prescribed by both external law and internal constraints--which helps ensure that the often-troubled and often-failed project of racial integration succeeds at work. People can be forced to get along--not without friction, but with surprising success.

"Working Together is an original and important book. With eloquent prose, Cynthia Estlund convincingly develops the argument, based on a careful integration of empirical studies and social and political theory, that working together enhances inter-group relations in the long run. Indeed her analysis demonstrates the work place is the most important setting for cooperative interaction among individuals of diverse backgrounds. This book has enormous relevance for students concerned about the future of civil society, and will be widely discussed and cited for many years."--William Julius Wilson, Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor, Harvard University
