  • Containmentby Ian Shapiro

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 20.95

    In this powerfully argued book, Ian Shapiro shows that the idea of containment offers the best hope for protecting Americans and their democracy into the future.

  • The Flight from Reality in the Human Sciencesby Ian Shapiro

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 27.95

    In this captivating yet troubling book, Ian Shapiro offers a searing indictment of many influential practices in the social sciences and humanities today.

In discipline after discipline, he argues, scholars have fallen prey to inward-looking myopia that... more...

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 24.95

    What should we expect from democracy, and how likely is it that democracies will live up to those expectations?

  • Ethnicity and Group Rightsby Ian Shapiro; Will Kymlicka

    NYU Press 1997; US$ 89.00

    Within Western political philosophy, the rights of groups has often been neglected or addressed in only the narrowest fashion. Focusing solely on whether rights are exercised by individuals or groups misses what lies at the heart of ethnocultural conflict, leaving the crucial question unanswered: can the familiar system of common citizenship rights... more...

  • Designing Democratic Institutionsby Ian Shapiro; Stephen Macedo

    NYU Press 2000; US$ 89.00

    As the principles and practices of democracy continue to spread ever more widely, it is hard to imagine a corner of the globe into which they will not eventually penetrate. But the euphoria of democratic revolutions is typically short-lived, and usually followed by disgruntlement and even cynicism about the actual operation of democratic institutions.... more...

  • Political Contingencyby Ian Shapiro; Sonu Bedi

    NYU Press 2007; US$ 89.00

    History is replete with instances of what might, or might not, have been. By calling something contingent, at a minimum we are saying that it did not have to be as it is. Things could have been otherwise, and they would have been otherwise if something had happened differently. This collection of original essays examines the significance of contingency... more...
