"Finally, a thoughtful and pointed critique of contemporary liberal theory . . . that breaks fresh ground by treating liberal theory as a form of political education which is deeply dependent upon a distinctive culture and strongly imbued with a particular conception of reason. . . . An original, humane, and consistently intelligent book, a must for those who care about democracy." - Sheldon S. Wolin
