"In this provocative book Talisse scrutinises the thesis of value pluralism and its alleged relationship with liberalism. [He] should be commended for writing a stimulating and provocative book that is crammed with a plethora of refreshingly pithy arguments." --Edward Hall, Political Studies Review
"[A] fascinating book, containing a wealth of argument. Talisse presents a strong challenge to value pluralists and pragmatists alike, and the book represents a much-needed corrective to common assumptions about the supposedly natural link between pluralism and liberalism. Pluralism and Liberal Politics ought to be read by anyone with an interest in contemporary debates about pluralism and political liberalism." --Jethro Butler, Plurilogue
"Talisse’s argument is ingenious...this is a remarkable work". - Andrew F. Smith, Journal of Moral Philosophy
