Editorial Reviews


"Tomasi insists that if political liberalism is to fulfill its aims its content must be revised to accommodate citizens who hold diverse but reasonable ethical commitments. His book constitutes a provocative challenge to much of the received wisdom about the content and place of justice within liberal thought. It will be read with interest by political and ethical liberals alike."--Matthew Clayton, Political Studies

From the Inside Flap

"This is a daring, inventive, and engagingly written book. Tomasi escapes the current liberal fixation with justice and legitimacy by asking searching questions about how truly good lives can be led under a just liberal regime. His answers will be controversial, but they command our attention because they test the very limits of the liberal tradition."--Eamonn Callan, Stanford University

"This book raises important questions about the relation between justice and a fuller account of what gives meaning and value to life. Tomasi's argument asks liberals to become aware of the consequences of politics guided by liberal justice for different ways of life, and when possible to take responsibility for those consequences. This book challenges widely held understandings of liberalism and is sure to spark a fruitful debate."--William A. Galston, Maryland School of Public Affairs

"Liberalism, as Tomasi conceives it, holds that moral questions are not always questions of justice, and moral answers need not and sometimes cannot take the form of building further guarantees into our institutions of political governance. For the sake of liberalism, Tomasi argues, we need to leave High Liberalism behind. A truly unsettling book, but also an admirable and much-needed book."--David Schmidtz, University of Arizona
