A masterful analysis of business and government that adds up to an explanation of American social policy-past, present, and future. Cathie Jo Martin describes the institutional dynamics of corporate politics while eloquently catching the voices and the aspirations of business men and women. Stuck in Neutral is wise, balanced, engaging, persuasive, theoretically sophisticated, and entirely unexpected in its conclusions.
