The July-August issue of Wiley Online Library's "About Campus" featured Peter's interview with executive editor Frank Shushok, Jr. in which he talked about how he began his work in helping people develop, nurture and sustain community, the genesis of his new book with John McKnight and Walter Brueggemann on challenging the consumer culture and redefining the "good life," the commodification and corporatization of our educational institutions, the meaning of "authentic community" ... and much more.
