"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." Daniel Weinstock, Université de Montréal

Republicanism and Political Theory is the first book to offer a comprehensive survey of republican political theory. Critically assessing the historical credentials, conceptual coherence and normative proposals of republicanism, it brings together original contributions from leading international scholars. The volume focuses on four main areas: liberty in the republican tradition; freedom as non-domination and its critics; the borders of republicanism; and new republican debates, reflecting upon the contribution that republicans have made to our understanding of political life. Individual chapters are closely related to one another, providing readers with valuable insight into the main debates taking place between republicans and their critics. An essential text for students in political theory and political science, this volume also serves as an invaluable resource for research scholars in political philosophy, intellectual history, law, international relations, European studies, and gender studies.
