His field of study being limited to modern liberal democracies, Kenney (political science, Austin Peay State U., Tennessee) counts Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico as new and Germany, Norway, Sweden, and the US as old. He contends that liberal theorists since Hobbes have understood the importance of virtues to political stability in a way that differs significantly from earlier interpretations of virtues, such as those of Aristotle or Plato, and believes that liberal virtues go far to ensure continued stability in established democracies and its consolidation in new ones. He also says that liberalism can defend itself from attacks by communitarians. The text is double spaced. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
