Index

""This collection, which brings together ten major figures in contemporary political theory, represents an important contribution to the elaboration of the republican paradigm. It furthers investigation into the republican's core theoretical commitment to a distinctive conception of liberty, and extends the theory's reach into new areas, to do with transnationalism, gender relations, and constitutionalism, to name just these. The essays are all first-rate, and should become reference points for future debate.""
