Editorial Reviews

Review

Mark Lilla will make many people mad, but to excellent purpose. He calls for a revived politics of liberty and justice for truly all and a real debate over how to achieve the common good. The job now is to find and include a genuinely diverse set of voices to create the new American 'we the people' that Lilla envisions.

-- "Anne-Marie Slaughter, author of Unfinished Business"

In the age of Trump, Mark Lilla's engaging and provocative book is a must-read. The Once and Future Liberal is full of insights on the failure of the identity politics movement, and on what progressives have to do to capture America's imagination and secure the common good.

-- "William Julius Wilson, author of More Than Just Race"

After the disaster of November 2016, a wreckage analysis is desperately needed. Mark Lilla offers a deep and provocative brief on what went wrong, and what liberals, moderates, and progressives might do about it.

-- "Steven Pinker, New York Times bestselling author"

Though it's a book written by a liberal Democrat for liberal Democrats, every conservative who cares about the future of American politics should read it...The Once and Future Liberal is a punchy, no-BS guide to how the Democrats can make the future their own...[A] must-read.

-- "American Conservative"

Brief but brilliant book.

-- "Fareed Zakaria" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
