Editorial Reviews

Bill Bradley
Communitarianism promises to shape a new political era in the way progressivism reshaped our nation a century ago.
The San Francisco Chronicle
For a movement that is only a few years old, the communitarians are bursting with ideas for rebuilding what they see as the pillars of society—the family, the school, and the community.
Booknews
Thirty articles from the journal , founded in 1990 as a forum for new communitarian thought. They discuss such topics as the foundations of communitarian liberalism, rights and responsibilities, how therapists threaten marriages, why the market does not safeguard civil rights,, democracy and the politics of difference, and immigration and political community in the US. Most of the contributors write from an academic setting. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
