Editorial Reviews

Review

A brilliant and original essay on virtue today. Our earnest responsibility may lack splendor, but Mark Blitz makes a dull thing fascinating. (Harvey Mansfield, Professor of Government, Harvard University; Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution)

Mark Blitz has written a beautifully crafted study of liberal ethics which can intellectually and politically provoke the specialist in political philosophy, the policy maker reflecting on responsible individual political action, and the general reader interested in the problem of freedom and responsibility in American Public life. (Ken Deutsch, SUNY Geneseo)

Duty Bound is replete with arresting insights and makes an argument that is an important one in our current political environment, where wrangles over an unpopular foreign war and nominations to the Supreme Court, among other things, not infrequently seem to reach new heights of partisan irresponsibility. (Claremont Review of Books)

Recommendeddddd (CHOICE)

This book is a useful contribution to the discussions of political ethics and the nature of political action within a liberal democracy. The book's style is highly accessible to novices and professionals and both will come away from their encounter with a sense of a deeper understanding of the questions and concerns. (Political Studies Review)

In this splendid book, Mark Blitz uncovers, in fine and concrete detail, the moral fibers that animate a healthy liberal democracy. It's a must for anyone interested in contemporary politics. (Jerry Weinberger)
