"This is an interesting and well-written book, one that addresses a series of difficult and important issues in contemporary political theory. The author's case for practical liberalism is argued carefully and in provocative ways, carving out a distinct view, and the overall result is impressive. This will be of interest not only to political theorists and philosophers but to an educated lay audience as well." - Lucas Swaine, Department of Government, Dartmouth College
