Democratic Individuality by Alan Gilbert
Book DescriptionThis ambitious and sweeping book presents a powerful argument against moral relativism and in favor of the objectivity of a theory of democratic individuality. Unlike much recent work in this field, the book does not simply adumbrate such a view. Rather, it develops the parallels between various versions of scientific and moral realism, and then reinterprets the history and internal logic of democratic theory, maintaining, for example, that the abolition of slavery represents genuine moral progress. The book also recasts the clashes between Marxist and Weberian, radical and liberal sociologies in the light of these moral claims, and sketches the institutions of a radical democracy.

Books By Author Alan Gilbert
Black Patriots and Loyalists, Paperback (October 2013)
We commonly think of the American Revolution as simply the war for independence from British colonial rule. This title asks us to rethink what we know about the Revolutionary War, to realize that while white Americans were fighting for their freedom, many black Americans were joining the British imperial forces to gain theirs.
Housing, the State and the Poor, Paperback (March 2009)
This book is concerned with the housing and service needs of the poor in Latin America and how they are articulated and satisfied.
Must Global Politics Constrain Democracy?, Paperback (August 1999)» View all books by Alan Gilbert
As each power vies for its national interests on the world stage, how do its own citizens' democratic interests fare at home? The author shows that all the major versions of realism and neo-realism, if properly stated with a view of the national interest as a common good, surprisingly lead to democracy.
