Jean Bethke Elshtain : Politics, Ethics, and Society Hardback

Edited by Debra Erickson, Michael Le Chevallier

Part of the Catholic Ideas for a Secular World series


Jean Bethke Elshtain (1941-2013) was a noted ethicist, political philosopher, and public intellectual.

Her four decades of scholarship defy easy categorization: she wrote both seminal works of theory and occasional pieces for the popular press, and she was variously viewed as radical and conservative, feminist and traditionalist, anti-war and pro-interventionist.

Jean Bethke Elshtain: Politics, Ethics, and Society is the first attempt to evaluate Elshtain's entire published body of work and to give shape to a wide-ranging scholarly career, with an eye to her work's ongoing relevance.

This collection of essays brings together scholars and public intellectuals from across the spectrum of disciplines in which Elshtain wrote.
