Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Unger] does not make moves in any game we know how to play ... [His] book may someday make possible a new national romance ... [It] will help the literate ... citizens of some country to see vistas where before they saw only dangers—see a hitherto undreamt-of national future ...”—Richard Rorty

“A philosophical mind out of the Third World turning the tables, to become synoptist and seer of the First.”—Perry Anderson
