A World Waiting to Be Born: Civility Re

M. Scott Peck, Author Bantam $22.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-553-09307-0
Addressing both personal and corporate interactions, psychiatrist Peck ( The Road Less Traveled ) stresses the need for increased civility, defined as ``consciously motivated organizational behavior that is ethical in submission to a Higher Power.'' Peck recycles the wisdom, bromides and Christian theology of his earlier works as he discusses subjects like marital tensions and the value of psychotherapy. Newer material includes sound arguments that organizations have an obligation to be ethical and that no one management style is best. He concludes by describing ``community-building workshops'' he has led for various groups. While he reports much success, and while he promotes civility and community as steps toward a better world, his general avoidance of social and political issues vitiates his claims. 100,000 first printing; BOMC and QPB alternates.
