A raw coming-of-age memoir
Announcing Regime Change by Patrick Deneen
Postliberals – those who argue that the emphasis of contemporary liberalism on individual autonomy and self-fashioning, progress, consent and abstract rights has begun to have deleterious consequences for our social fabric and flourishing – are very good at writing critiques. What is harder is outlining a constructive, positive strategy and formulating proposals for correcting liberal over-reach and its consequences. This is, however, what Patrick Deneen aims to do in his new book, Regime Change, which I am delighted to announce will be published in the UK by Forum.
