Virtue and the Making of Modern Liberalism

Synopsis

"Berkowitz has a talent for careful reading of works of political theory, acute analysis, and clear formulation. All of these make this book a pleasure to read: it is the best written book on political theory I have read in some time."--Jerry Muller, The Catholic University of America

"This is an engaging, readable, and persuasive study. Berkowitz conveys a fresh sense of early liberalism that will stimulate reflection even among scholars who have long studied it, as well as among more general readers."--Rogers M. Smith, Yale University

""Virtue and the Making of Modern Liberalism" offers both a penetrating analysis of the debate over virtue within modern liberal theory and practice and a careful account of the role of virtue in the classical liberal tradition. . . . This fairminded book advances our understanding of an important topic and deserves a wide audience."--William A. Galston, University of Maryland
