Reviews

The culmination of thirty years of reflection on modern politics, Metamorphoses of the City is Pierre Manent's Summa. By tracing the transformation of Western political form from the Greek city-state to the nation state, then to our increasingly post-national world, he raises profound questions about the future of self-government. A beautifully conceived and deeply unsettling book.--Mark Lilla, Columbia University
