Editorial Reviews


No one wishing to possess a concise yet conceptually comprehensive account of the questions bedeviling liberalism will be disappointed with Robert B. Talisse's Democracy After Liberalism
. -- New Political Science

 A concise and clear assessment of contemporary political theory...This is a book to be read with profit by professor, student, and layperson alike. Talisse skillfully summarizes debates that fill shelves of books, providing accounts that not only are conceptually clear but also frame the debate for further investigation...The virtue of Democracy After Liberalism is that it successfully clarifies the positions and the stakes of contemporary debates in political philosophy. In the end, Talisse himself cannot be said to have offered more than one highly plausible and engaging resolution to the confusion of political ideas in which we live. This is no mean accomplishment, and Democracy After Liberalism makes for rewarding reading...  Liberalism is not finished yet; not in fact and certainly not within the form of deliberativism set forth in Talisse's excellent book. --Project Muse

Format: Paperback
This short book covers more ground than most twice its length. Talisse argues that popular forms of liberalism (Rawls, Rorty, Galston) cannot meet their own standard of neutral justification. He then offers a fascinating epistemological defense of democracy. My only complaint is this book could have been longer. Sometimes the arguments move very quickly and the conclusions in the final chapter could have been expanded. But as it is, this book is lean and to the point.
