The New Morality and the Modern State

Edward L. Rubin

  • Provides a powerful and clear explanation how both moral orders and types of government rise and fall
  • Speaks directly to today's political and cultural controversies, demonstrating how proponents and opponents of policies like gay marriage and abortion rights are grounded in different moral orders that are centuries old
