Donald Moon’s John Rawls: Liberalism and the Challenges of Late Modernity adds an accessible biography of an indispensable political thinker to the Modernity and Political Thought Series, edited by profs. Kennan Ferguson and Morton Schoolman. By addressing the philosophical justifications and conditions of liberalism, (without a doubt among the most controversial achievements of modernity), Rawls' life and work helped establish the fundamental commitment of classical liberalism: the understanding that the individual has always stood in an ambiguous relationship to the central object of the study of politics: the state.
