"With clarity and force, Talisse's immensely readable book briskly acquaints readers with the complex theories necessary to grappling with issues worth caring about. While meticulously attentive to pertinent scholarship, Talisse is never pedantic or jargonistic. He educates the reader by reiterating exactly the premises necessary to move his theses ahead. By the end, the reader feels a real stake in the questions and answers posed; I cannot recommend PPD highly enough."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"Talisse’s book is a smart contribution to several different discussions in political theory, and is well worth a serious read."-- Political Theory
"I love the way Talisse writes philosophy. He is one of my heroes, and his book will prove to be a major player in subsequent discussions." --Richard M. Gale, University of Pittsburgh, Professor Emeritus
