Product description

Review

"An extremely impressive volume integrated around issues at the core of many, if not most, debates in contemporary Anglo-American political and legal philosophy. It will undoubtedly be useful to scholars, teachers, and students working in philosophy, law, and political science."

"An extremely impressive volume integrated around issues at the core of many, if not most, debates in contemporary Anglo-American political and legal philosophy. It will undoubtedly be useful to scholars, teachers, and students working in philosophy, law, and political science."--David Ingram, author of Group Rights: Reconciling Equality and Difference "The discussions taken up by the contributors to this volume reach to the nature of civil society, the character of democracy, the relationship between the demands of individual liberty and those of the common good, and the role of law and government policy in weaving the fabric of a social whole."--from the Preface

�An extremely impressive volume integrated around issues at the core of many, if not most, debates in contemporary Anglo-American political and legal philosophy.

"A timely and interesting collection of papers organized around three themes--civil virtue, toleration, and cultural fragmentation. While the essays articulate a variety of perspectives, the writers share both a commitment to liberal ideals, and a concern that civility and tolerance are decreasing. . . . This is a book that addresses a very current problem within liberal societies, as well as suggesting areas worthy of further exploration. It is a volume that would be of interest to those concerned with the state of liberal democracies, and with the theoretical and moral commitments that underpin them."--Philosophy in Review

"This work provides rhetorical scholars with a wealth of background material and several case studies on a wide range of controversial, contemporary issues."--Argumentation and Advocacy

"The discussions taken up by the contributors to this volume reach to the nature of civil society, the character of democracy, the relationship between the demands of individual liberty and those of the common good, and the role of law and government policy in weaving the fabric of a social whole."--from the Preface
