The description for this book, Political Equality: An Essay in Democratic Theory, will be forthcoming.
" . . . Beitz believes it is possible to explain political equality in terms of a deeper moral perspective. He not only provides democrats with a line of argument against those who think egalitarian commitments are arbitrary; he also develops a sensible account of what democratic equality requires in the way of specific institutions. This is a real advance in the philosophy of democracy."—William Smith, University of Houston
