Political theorists and political scientists alike will welcome its more concrete approach to the study of political morality. -- Bernard Yack, Brandeis University Philp has produced a provocative, highly readable, and engaging philosophy of political practice--a morality for the political process. Philp does an important and often amazing thing: he restores to politics the idea of the leader as an agent of change. -- Senator Gary Hart
