Pressestimmen

Can anything fresh that is also worthwhile be said about communitarianism anymore? The essays in this volume show not only that it is possible to do so, but how much of real value can still be learned from continuing to explore the issues raised (and debated) by communitarians. This is the best introduction to the current state of communitarian thinking of which I am aware, and it provides abundant evidence of the continuing intellectual vitality of the movement... -- R. Bruce Douglass, Georgetown University Autonomy and Order is a splendid resource for anyone interested in communitarian thought. It includes critical essays as well as penetrating analyses of important themes not usually explored. Above all, the anthology displays the rich texture of communitarian ideas and the many-sided challenges they pose, going well beyond routine slogans about rights, localism, or conformity. -- Philip Selznick, University of California, Berkeley Can anything fresh that is also worthwhile be said about communitarianism anymore?
