Reviews

Takes a characteristically coherent and thoughtful multiculturalist stand on various issues such as global distributive justice, citizenship in multinational states, nationalism and federalism. Nations and Nationalism Kymlicka's criticisms set extremely high standards of rigor and even-handedness for critics of his own views ... this volume represents a further distinguished contribution to the remarkable recent flowering of Canadian political thought by one of its major representatives. Canadian Journal of Political Science Kymlicka's mid-level theory successfully tackles the confusion and obfuscation in our everyday discourse on ethnocultural justice ... displays a sophisticated philosophical engagement with reality, which exemplifies the very best of mid-level and applied contemporary political philosophy ... essential reading for anyone interested in the minority rights debate. Democratization Politics in the Vernacular presents a collection of extremely interesting and well-written essays that offer insightful and thought-provoking analysis of a number of issues central to the ongoing discourse surrounding minority rights. Importantly, its arguments are equally accessible to specialists and non-specialists, and the book contains a substantial independent bibliography and a thorough, helpful index. Shaun Young, Canadian Public Administration
