"One of New Statesman's Books of the Year 2019"
"In On Mercy, Malcolm Bull conducts a clever thought experiment on the question of whether mercy might not only be reconciled with justice but could displace it at the center of our political life."---David A. Skeel, Wall Street Journal
"While Bull's book is charmingly erudite . . . it is also an important work of political philosophy."---Joe Humphreys, Irish Times
"Subtle, scholarly, and interesting. . . .in [this] book, mercy becomes a concept that can illuminate our history, our present, and the dilemmas on the horizon."---Chiara Ricciardone, The Philosopher
"Malcolm Bull's On Mercy . . . excavates the virtue of mercy as a means to dethroning the supreme values of our age that have failed us."---Thomas Meaney, New Statesman
"Bull's provocative essay provides fresh insights into some foundational issues in political philosophy and mounts a new and engaging challenge to the dominant justice-centered approaches to politics."---Steven Tudor, Criminal Law and Philosophy
"Bull makes a more far-reaching case, though, than merely to plead for the significance of mercy-considerations to the political arguments of our age. . . . [A] fascinating essay."---Christopher Brooke, Mind
