Dagger states the case for republican liberalism, a political theory that combines a concern for individual rights and autonomy with a concern for the claims of community, duty, and public-spirited citizenship. In his provocative and wide-ranging book, he demonstrates that republican liberalism is both plausible as a theory and attractive as a response to several pressing political problems.
