Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Leading theorists explore the concept of political liberalism.

The concept of a purely political liberalism that first emerged in the writings of John Rawls has attracted a significant amount of commentary and proven to be one of the most provocative and influential developments in contemporary political theory. Political Liberalism gathers together a number of eminent theorists, each with their own distinctive understanding of political liberalism, to explore and analyze the character and content of the idea—as opposed to a single conception—of this term. This book reveals the rich and complex nature of the dialogue among proponents of political liberalism and its important nuances, and in so doing offers a valuable resource for students and specialists alike.

“…as a taste of the breadth of argument within political liberalism, this book provides an excellent start.” — Political Studies Review

"Young has brought together the canonical texts of what has come to be called 'political' liberalism in a single, highly coherent volume. These are very important works in contemporary political philosophy whose intellectual quality is beyond dispute." — Patrick Neal, author of Liberalism and Its Discontents

Contributors include Bruce Ackerman, Rainer Forst, George Klosko, Charles Larmore, J. Donald Moon, John Rawls, Judith Shklar, and Shaun P. Young.

Shaun P. Young is a Senior Policy Adviser at the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Government of Ontario. He is the author of Beyond Rawls: An Analysis of the Concept of Political Liberalism.
