Brexit, Trump, international protests, the era of the “strongman”: Is liberalism really in crisis, or will it come out of this historical period changed, but unscathed?

Katrina’s book, In the Shadow of Justice: Postwar Liberalism and the Remaking of Political Philosophy is published by Princeton University Press.
