"'Whither liberalism?' The question is so shopworn that one is inclined to feel grateful to anyone for asking instead: 'Whence?' Knowing where we came from may not tell us where we are going, but it at least points us in the right direction. Peter Berkowitz has now done us this timely service with Virtue and the Making of Modern Liberalism."--Bret Louis Stephens, Wall Street Journal
"In elegantly written studies of Hobbes, Kant, Locke, and Mill, Berkowitz finds that the fathers of modern liberalism, not unsurprisingly, believed that the virtues are necessary even in a liberal regime."--First Things
From the Inside Flap
"Berkowitz has a talent for careful reading of works of political theory, acute analysis, and clear formulation. All of these make this book a pleasure to read: it is the best written book on political theory I have read in some time."--Jerry Muller, The Catholic University of America
"This is an engaging, readable, and persuasive study. Berkowitz conveys a fresh sense of early liberalism that will stimulate reflection even among scholars who have long studied it, as well as among more general readers."--Rogers M. Smith, Yale University
"Virtue and the Making of Modern Liberalism offers both a penetrating analysis of the debate over virtue within modern liberal theory and practice and a careful account of the role of virtue in the classical liberal tradition. . . . This fairminded book advances our understanding of an important topic and deserves a wide audience."--William A. Galston, University of Maryland--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
