    How does society function when you can't trust everyone? When we think about trust, we naturally think about personal relationships or bank vaults. That's too narrow. Trust is much broader, and much more important. Nothing in society works without trust. It's the foundation of communities, commerce, democracy, everything. In this insightful and entertaining book, Schneier weaves together ideas from across the social and biological Science & Technology’s to explain how society induces trust.
