Reviews of the hardback: 'Michael Perry is clearly one of our best and most prolific legal scholars, and The Political Morality of Liberal Democracy is one of his finest books. Not the least strength of this volume is the way Perry artfully performs what he commends to us. The thoughtful, challenging arguments Perry offers teach us in the doing how Perry would have us conduct our political arguments with one another.' Milner S. Ball, Harmon W. Caldwell Chair Emeritus in Constitutional Law, University of Georgia
