Distinguished political philosopher Michael Walzer offers a provocative reappraisal of the core tenets of liberalism. Ranging over contested issues including multiculturalism, pluralism, difference, civil society, and racial and gender justice, he suggest ways in which liberal theory might be revised to make it more hospitable to the claims of equality.
"[An] elegant and probing critique of contemporary liberal thought."--G. John Ikenberry, Foreign Affairs
"With his usual originality, clarity, depth, and intelligent judgments, Michael Walzer offers a perspective on political life that reveals serious inadequacies in standard liberal views and points to directions of change."--Robert Dahl, Sterling Professor Emeritus, Yale University.
