9780333674826: Communitarianism: A New Agenda for Politics and Citizenship
Rezension:

'With this important and thoughtful book, communitarian thinking finds a strong British voice. Tam combines, in a remarkably successful manner, a first rate command of the philosophical issues with the experience of a communitarian practitioner. He writes with clarity and conviction. A 'must' for all who care not only about communitarianism, but about community and indeed a good society.' - Amitai Etzioni, author of The New Golden Rule

'Henry Tam is an outstanding exponent of communitarian ideas, grounding his work in both a deep understanding of political theory and experience in local government.' - Professor John Stewart, University of Birmingham

'Henry Tam brings a refreshing new perspective to the well-worn debate between communitarianism and individualism, derived from practical experience as well as moral commitment. He write with passionate urgency, without sacrificing intellectual rigour. The result is a clarion call for a tolerant, democratic and pluralistic vision of community, as far removed from the moral authoritarianism that sometimes flies under the communitarian banner as from the hyper-individualism of free-market fundamentalism. This book should be compulsory reading for the Blair Cabinet.' - Professor David Marquand, University of Oxford
'...[A] scholarly overview of the subject combined with an agenda for political practice and reform. The book is an excellent statement of the communitarian approach to politics and citizenship.' - Desmond King, Times Higher Education Supplement

'Henry Tam has produced a stimulating and quietly sharp-edged synthesis and analysis of communitarianism. Although this is the first overview of the subject from a British author, its vantage point is distinctly mid-Atlantic - perhaps necessarily so. Publication at this juncture is particularly fortuitous, given a Government prepared to face up to the galloping complexity and insecurity of society, and the acute consequences for, inter alia, the education system.' - Andrew Phillips, Chairman, Citizenship Foundation, UK

Vom Verlag:

'Henry Tam has produced a stimulating and quietly sharp-edged synthesis and analysis of communitarianism. Although this is the first overview of the subject from a British author, its vantage point is distinctly mid-Atlantic - perhaps necessarily so. Publication at this juncture is particularly fortuitous, given a Government prepared to face up to the galloping complexity and insecurity of society, and the acute consequences for, inter alia, the education system.' - Andrew Phillips, Chairman, Citizenship Foundation, UK Although Communitarianism has a long history, it is only recently that it has emerged to pose a major challenge to the traditional left-right divide in politics and the competing principles of individualism and collectivism. Henry Tam's book provides a broad-ranging and accessible introduction to communitarian ideas and their implications for politics and citizenship drawing on a wide range of international examples and engaging with communitarianism's critics to demonstrate clearly its relevance beyond the United States base of many of its major protagonists.
