Product Description

Review

"Button argues that 'contract makes citizens, ' rather than vice versa. He provides no less than a reexamination of the major texts in social contract theory--including those of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau--emphasizing the importance within this tradition of a 'transformative' and deeply educative project. An excellent book: fresh, original, clearly written and cogently argued, and based on an impressively wide array of sources. This book deserves a wide readership."--Stephen Macedo, Princeton University

"In a beautifully written, persuasively argued book, Button offers a new account of the modern liberal tradition of political thought."--D. Casson, Choice

"Button's book remains an original and important investigation into the history of civic education in the social contract tradition. Political theorists will find much that is of interest here."
