"By far the best introduction to contemporary philosophy currently available."
"[The book] represents a significant milestone in the renaissance of political philosophy...one of the first high-level surveys of the key lines of development in this renaissance, integrating diverse schools of thought and their literature in an enormously helpful way...For a higher level undergraduate or graduate course on contemporary political philosophy it would be ideal. Moreover, it is a serious work in political philosophy deserving the attention and respect of the mature political-philosophical community."
"It should become a core text in graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in contemporary political theory...Kymlicka has given us a book that is highly intelligent, clear, readable, and focused on crucial issues -- and sometimes brilliant."

CONTEMPORARY POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY
Dr. Kymlicka discusses each of the major schools of contemporary political thought: utilitarianism, liberal egalitarianism, libertarianism, Marxism, communitarianism and feminism, with in-depth discussions of influential contemporary American and British philosophers.
Comprehensive and up-to-date in its inclusion of communitarian and feminist approaches to justice, it also discusses common elements and differences among various theories.
Will Kymlicka is the author of Liberalism, Community, and Culture (Clarendon Press/ OUP) published in 1989.
