Multiculturalism is a fact of contemporary political life. Yet it is also an issue that threatens to undermine the viability of a modern democratic state, with its ideal of equal citizenship. This innovative volume brings a selection of leading political theorists to the wide-ranging debate on multiculturalism and political legitimacy. By focusing on the challenge to mainstream liberal theory posed by the resurgence of interest in the cultural identities that inform and legitimise polities, the authors confront issues such as human rights, liberalism, cultural pluralism and power relations. At issue here is the very idea of a polity as a discursive community. This book will be of interest to students of social and political theory and to anyone concerned with the shape of politics in the modern world.
