In Making Men Moral, his 1995 book, George questioned the central doctrines of liberal jurisprudence and political theory. In his new work he extends his critique of liberalism, and also goes beyond it to show how contemporary natural law theory provides a superior way of thinking about basic problems of justice and political morality. It is written with the same combination of stylistic elegance and analytical rigour that distinguished his critical work. Not content merely to defend natural law from its cultural despisers; he deftly turns the tables and deploys the idea to mount a stunning attack on regnant liberal beliefs about such issues as abortion, sexuality, and the place of religion in public life. Students as well as scholars in law, political science, and philosophy will find George's arguments stimulating, challenging, and compelling.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Princeton Professor Robert George is one of today's outstanding thinkers in the area of law, morality, and politics. * Modern Age, Fall 2000 *
An impressive, sustained argument for the proposition that there are objective moral truths ... illuminating ... one need not agree with all of his responses to find the book instructive. * J. Budziszewski, University of Texas, Austin, Philosophia Christi *
These essays reveal George to be an honourable, passionate, and intelligent defender of a moral and political theory which, both in its foundations and its understanding of law and policy, presents liberalism with an opponent it cannot ignore * David Archard, MIND *
