Communitarian thought is at the heart of a fierce debate in political theory about the justice, efficacy, and future of liberalism and liberal societies. Amitai Etzioni has collected a sterling list of contributors who bring communitarian thinking to bear on such timely and contentious issues as abortion, homosexuality, free speech, and personal autonomy. These essays cross disciplinary lines and connect the ivory tower to the world beyond.
