Tolerance in the 21st Century investigates some of the key philosophical and practical dilemmas surrounding the implementation and realization of tolerance in the 21st century.

Review quote

This distinguished group of political scientists, philosophers and economists addresses how technological change and the global economy affect the role of tolerance in domestic and international politics. These essays challenge us to examine the extent to which modern democracies can-or should-compromise their values when confronted with forces that reject democratic ideas of tolerance. Must democracies tolerate the intolerant? -- Michael Margolis, University of Cincinnati The study of toleration in contemporary political science has been deeply bifurcated between empirical and philosophical modes of inquiry. The admirable and wholly original purpose of Tolerance in the Twenty-First Century is to draw the two aspects of the toleration literature into conversation in order to enrich both. The individual contributors perform yeomen's service in achieving this collective goal-the chapters are uniformly clear, accessible and profound, offering the opportunity for empiricists to understand the insights of their normative colleagues, and philosophers to grasp the value of empirical investigations. The volume deserves to gain a wide readership among theorists and philosophers no less than scientific scholars of politics. -- Cary J. Nederman, Texas A&M Universityshow more
