"The politics of recognition plays a central role in discussions of identity, equality and democratic inclusions in contemporary social and political thought, yet until this book there has been no comprehensive and authoritative guide to the literature on recognition. Thompson displays a mastery of the material and provides a sure-footed guide to the intricacies of the work of the main theorists of recognition – Axel Honneth, Nancy Fraser and Charles Taylor. This book will be required reading for those working on democratic inclusion, identity politics and equality, and serves as a first-rate contribution to the literature on social and political theory."
Paul Kelly, London School of Economics and Political Science
