Is Patriotism Good for Anyone Other Than Flag Manufacturers?
So asks the Cato Institute in its newest Cato-Unbound (a quasi blog/online magazine). George Kateb, author of Patriotism and Other Mistakes, will be writing the lead essay. American Enterprise Institute’s Walter Berns, author of Making Patriots; William Galston of the Brookings Institution and the University of Maryland, author of The Practice of Liberal Pluralism; and Chandran Kukathas of the London School of Economics, author of The Liberal Archipelago: A Theory of Diversity and Freedom will be writing the responses. This should be an interesting panel. Galston is always fascinating.
