Promotional Information

A superb work--well-written, pungent, and exemplary as a comparative study. Mark Hulliung shows in an erudite and convincing way that the same concepts--liberalism and republicanism, as well as rights--have had very different meanings and uses in America and France. -- Stanley Hoffmann, Harvard University In this tour de force of comparative intellectual history of the United States and France, Hulliung offers a provocative reading and reinterpretation of the liberal and republican traditions in France and the United States. This is a well-timed book that seeks a new synthesis of liberal and republican thought--a master work, brilliantly written by one of the finest minds in political theory today. -- James F. Hollifield, Southern Methodist University Hulliung means to contribute to the recent debate about liberalism and republicanism in the making of modernity. He adds a very welcome new dimension to the discussion by developing a comparison of the two "sister republics," the U.S. and France. He shows, persuasively, that the so-called great divide between these two traditions in America never existed (except in a few marginal places), but that it has been a real feature of French political culture. If you thought this debate had grown old and stale, think again. Hulliung tells us both much that is new and much that is true, and his readers are the beneficiaries. -- Michael P. Zuckert, University of Notre Dame
