About the Author

Jeremy Waldron is University Professor in the School of Law at New York University.


The problem with revolutionary politics, in short, is that it tends to be naive about political institutions. I can recommend no better corrective than liberal political philosopher Jeremy Waldron, and no better introduction to his thinking than his recently published collection of essays, Political Political Theory... To read Waldron is to reawaken ideas that so shape our world that they typically only live in the background of political theory and debate. It is to survey the pantheon of constitutional liberalism-Locke, Montesquieu, Condorcet, Madison, Kant, Mill, et al.-to step into their shoes and think hard about bicameralism, bills of rights, and judicial review, and appreciate the enormity of their intellectual and real-world achievements. -- David V. Johnson * Dissent *
This is a brilliant book. It will excite readers and spark a revival of constitutional concerns that people might once have believed had been consigned to the history of ideas. -- Marc Stears, University of Oxford
