In this Book

summary
Character, Community, and Politics revives or redefines a number of fundamental but neglected ideas. Chief among them are commitment, community, responsibility, and character, concepts that scholar of public administrator Clark E. Cochran deftly develops and illuminates through an exploration of authority, freedom, pluralism, and the common good. Drawing on a wide variety of fields, such as philosophy, ethics, literature, moral theology, and sociology, Cochran renews these concepts so as to outline a theory of human life and political order distinct from sclerotic categories such as conservatism, socialism, radicalism, or Marxism.
