`Review from previous edition This is a very good book...it contains an original interpretation of certain aspects of liberal political philosophy; and it applies some of these insights to the pressing issue of the kind of education that is appropriate for liberal citizenship. Callan is to be commended for applying a sophisticated liberal political philosophy to the difficult and neglected issues of citizenship education. Even when readers disagree with Callan's conclusions, they will benefit from engaging with his argument and analysis.' The Review of Politics
`Its argument has obvious relevance to a range of educational settings. Callan's reasoned and dialogical way of writing underpins an honest and disciplined approach to political education in a liberal democracy.' Journal of Moral Education
