"Sonu Bedi offers not only a vigorous critique of the use of rights in political justification but also a novel approach to defending the idea of limited government. Rejecting Rights may well be rejected by liberals and libertarians alike, but Bedi presents a case that is not easily dismissed."
Chandran Kukathas, Chair in Political Theory, London School of Economics and Political Science
"Provocative, deeply original, and lucid: this book makes a powerful case for downplaying liberalism's focus on individual rights in favor of a more nimble requirement of public justification in the face of encroachments on liberty. Sonu Bedi's Rejecting Rights should provoke a fresh reconsideration of liberal constitutionalism. An impressive achievement."
