Summary


The tension between the individualist view and the communalist view dominates current debate about liberal politics. DeLue establishes a basis for political discourse in a liberal society--an enlarged discourse that allows people of both views to be critically reflective citizens with the necessary strong sense of obligation to the state. DeLue describes this enlarged culture and prescribes what the state must do to nurture it.

"It is a concise well-written treatment of the issue of political obligation in a liberal society. It is not overburdened with extraneous material and cuts a straight path through the issues with a definite--albeit, from some perspectives, a contentious--argument." -- John G. Gunnel, State University of New York at Albany

Steve M. DeLue is Professor and Chair of Political Science at Miami University, Ohio.
