Christian Rostbøll publishes new book Compromise and Disagreement in Contemporary Political Theory, with Theresa Scavenius

Christian F. Rostbøll has just published the book Compromise and Disagreement in Contemporary Political Science, together with Theresa Scavenius. The book is a part in the series Routledge Innovations in Political Theory.

Compromise and Disagreement in Contemporary Political Theory provides a critical discussion of when and to what extent compromise is the best response to pluralism and disagreement in democratic decision-making and beyond. Christian F. Rostbøll and Theresa Scavenius draw together the work of ten established and emerging scholars to provide different perspectives on compromise.

From the reviews:

'Christian Rostbøll and Theresa Scavenius' volume offers the most searching analysis available of the nature, limits and ethics of compromise. It brings together established and up and coming scholars, who divide roughly equally between critical defenders and reflective critics of the coherence and moral worth of compromise.'
Richard Bellamy, Director of the Max Weber Programme, European University Institute

'An important book ... a must read for all political theorists interested in constitutionalism and democracy.'
Jean L. Cohen, Nell and Herbert Singer Professor of Political Science and Contemporary Civilization, Columbia University
