Product Description


The book is wonderfully written, full of insights and rich argumentation, covers a wide range of issues regarding liberal legitimacy, and does this with clarity and subtlety. It is the most sophisticated defence of Rawlsian liberalism available. (Andres Moles, Journal of Applied Philosophy)

Quong is never anything less than a clear and reliable guide to the details of the philosophical debates of contemporary liberals. But his careful narrowings of these debates should not obscure the larger achievement of this very fine book. (Larry Krasnoff, Social Theory and Practice)

Quong has written a highly valuable contribution to liberal political theory. His arguments against liberal perfectionism are compelling. This book should prove to be a vital resource for both political liberals and liberal perfectionists. (Daniel Savery, Res Publica)

He is a Senior Lecturer in Political Philosophy in the Manchester Centre for Political Theory at the University of Manchester.

He is an associate editor for two journals: Politics, Philosophy, & Economics, and Representation: The Journal of Representative Democracy.
