Robert Fuller talked about his book All Rise: Somebodies, Nobodies, and the Politics of Dignity, published by Berrett-Koehler. In his book, he argues that rankism - the abuse of the power inherent in rank - does serious damage to private relationships and public institutions such as within Congress. He discussed how being more civilized and dignified may help bring politicians together on major policy issues. He responded to audience telephone calls and electronic mail. close
