Ajume H. Wingo argues that non-rational factors--rhetoric, symbols, and traditions--provide the actual source of motivation in the development and sustainability of the liberal democratic state. Drawing from historical and philosophical sources, Wingo demonstrates that these "veils" can play an essential role in a thriving, stable liberal democratic state.


1. Introduction to veil politics; 2. History, culture and persons; 3. Liberalism and veil politics; 4. The art of liberal politics; 5. Civic education in a liberal state.


'... there has always been a shortage of thinkers willing to do the hard work of giving an affirmative account of what is supposed to be lacking in the liberal picture, thinkers who are not content merely to carp but who set out to show what a richer and more adequate philosophy of politics would look like. Ajume Wingo is one of the very few who are willing and able to do this, and for that reason I believe this book marks the emergence of a refreshing new voice in political theory ... we should be grateful to Ajume Wingo for teaching us to see things new and for showing us - in a way that many of us would do well to imitate - how the new things that we see can be incorporated into our reflection on the things that for too long have been dominating our vision.'
