About the Authors
  • Ajume H. Wingo argues that non-rational factors--rhetoric, symbols, and traditions--provide the actual source of motivation in the development and sustainability of the liberal democratic state. Drawing from historical and philosophical sources, Wingo demonstrates that these "veils" can play an essential role in a thriving, stable liberal democratic state.

    • Radical challenge to contemporary political theory
    • Strong endorsement of author from Jeremy Waldron in a special preface to the book
    • Interdisciplinary appeal across philosophy, political science, law, and sociology
