Abstract

Paul Starr’s book on liberalism is a true tour de force in the evolution and transformation of both a political theory and a political movement. Besieged by neo-conservative ideas and politics in the last quarter of a century in America, liberalism can now break the siege and redefine itself in relation to the new challenges of the twenty-first century. The book advances powerful arguments for dealing creatively with those challenges. Indeed, the true force of liberalism resides in its capacity to deal with a changing world and its contradictory needs, while remaining faithful to its own premises and promises.
