"This judiciously edited collection offers a valuable assessment of Michael Oakeshott's continuing relevance for western and non-western political thought. In addition to essays illuminating the concepts of conservatism, liberalism, constitutionalism and liberal education that Oakeshott developed during the Cold War era, it includes timely explorations of the growing interest in Oakeshott's thought amongst East Asian political theorists. The volume will be welcomed by general readers as well as by Oakeshott scholars." Noel O'Sullivan, University of Hull, UK"This volume takes Oakeshott studies in an entirely new direction by considering him as a mid-20th century philosopher addressing (if often obliquely) the Cold War. It also applies Oakeshott's thought to the contemporary problems of East Asia. The authors of the essays are a nice mix of Oakeshott experts and younger, up-and-coming scholars. This important contribution to Oakeshott studies comes at a time when he is increasingly being recognized as an important thinker outside the Anglo-American world, and this book will further that recognition." Elizabeth Corey, Baylor University, USA"
