About the book:

In a comprehensive survey of civic society, Selbourne stakes out the ground of new politics and ethics, founded not upon rights but upon duties: the duties of the citizen to society and of society to the citizen. The text contains a powerful criticism of the corrupted liberal order, of its rights, privileges, demands and aspirations, as well as setting the agenda for a new "civic social-ism" of the future. This volume carries Selbourne's ethical critique into the realms of political, philosophical writing, rooted in the classical tradition, but addressed directly to the ills of our time.
