This is a second-hand copy of the book Sovereign Virtue: The Theory and Practice of Equality by Ronald Dworkin.
Condition: this is a used book in acceptable, bordering on good condition. The dust jacket has a little bit of wear around the edges, as is visible in the product images. Faint signs that age spots/foxing is starting to appear on outer edge and inside of the dust jacket. The dust jacket is currently covered in a non-adhesive PVC cover (except ends of flaps). This is to keep it safe. It can easily be removed as it is simply folded in place.
"Politicians are now anxious to endorse what they call a 'new' liberalism, or a 'third' way between the old rigidities of right and left. These descriptions are often criticized as merely slogans lacking substance. The criticism is generally justified, but the appeal of the slogans nevertheless suggests something important. The old egalitarians insisted that a political community has a collective responsibility to show equal concern for all its citizens, but they defined that equal concern in a way that ignored those citizens' personal responsibilities. Conservatives new and old-insisted on that personal responsibility, but they have defined it so as to ignore the collective responsibility. The choice between these two mistakes is an unnecessary as well as an unattractive one. If the argument that follows is sound, we can achieve a unified account of equality and responsibility that respects both. If that is the third way, then it should be our way."
