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.

Review quote

"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."
