What People are Saying About This

Ruth Sample

Jon Mandle's book directly addresses some of the important difficulties in reading and understanding Rawls. . . . Rawls's work is notoriously difficult because of the comprehensiveness of his view, the sophistication of his position, the many technical "asides," and the style in which it was written. "What's Left of Liberalism?" cuts through all of this.

A valuable document for courses that address contemporary American political thought.
