"The writing is crisp, the research and argumentation uniformly good."--Choice
From the Inside Flap
"Overall, there is nothing like this book that I know of. The contributors approach the question of the nature and place of civil society from within the most important contextual understandings of the major philosophical, ethical, and religious positions available in the world. This is a book that brings together material from an unusually wide range of perspectives on an important topic. The scholarship is first-rate--one profits from reading the footnotes as well as the text."--Tracy Strong, University of California, San Diego
"The conversation about civil society is important and exciting, but remains marked by a high level of noise and a low level of coherence. This volume shows that the many disagreements over defining the concept of civil society are not simply explanatory--maybe not even mostly explanatory--but normative and ideological in nature. These essays begin to translate the terms of these perspectives into the language of civil society, a key preliminary to understanding the contours of the conversation. In so doing, the volume provides an important contribution to an increasingly rich conversation."--Mark E. Warren, Georgetown University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
