Omtale: Communitarianism
'Henry Tam has produced a stimulating and quietly sharp-edged synthesis and analysis of communitarianism. Although this is the first overview of the subject from a British author, its vantage point is distinctly mid-Atlantic - perhaps necessarily so. Publication at this juncture is particularly fortuitous, given a Government prepared to face up to the galloping complexity and insecurity of society, and the acute consequences for, inter alia, the education system.' - Andrew Phillips, Chairman, Citizenship Foundation, UK Although Communitarianism has a long history, it is only recently that it has emerged to pose a major challenge to the traditional left-right divide in politics and the competing principles of individualism and collectivism. Henry Tam's book provides a broad-ranging and accessible introduction to communitarian ideas and their implications for politics and citizenship drawing on a wide range of international examples and engaging with communitarianism's critics to demonstrate clearly its relevance beyond the United States base of many of its major protagonists.
