In this collection of recent essays (several appearing in English for the first time), John Dunn brings his penetrating insight to a wide range of political issues. He argues for the importance of a historical perspective in political thought, engages with central concepts such as obligation, trust, and freedom of conscience, and tackles contemporary problems such as racism and humanitarian intervention. The volume provides a representative collection of work by one of the most astute political commentators writing today.
