Abstract or Description

"It's not personal; it's just business," says the professional killer to his victim. But business is always personal, and even though modern business corporations have been granted the legal status of persons, they are still part of the impersonal engines of society that operate far beyond human reach. In this thought-provoking pamphlet, Keith Hart explores how we have never been more conscious of ourselves as unique personalities, even as we live in a society increasingly ruled by faceless corporate forces. What place is there for the humanity of individual persons in today's social and economic frameworks? This is the hit man's dilemma and it is ours as well.
