The Good Society 15.1 (2006) 61-71

Democratic Theory:
A Basic Bibliography
Patrick S. O'Donnell

This section on 'theory' is from a larger bibliography containing a 'praxis' section, a portion of which was published in Vol. 14, No. 3 (2005) of The Good Society. Sections 1 and 2 assume some familiarity with primary texts and therefore include titles that fall under the rubric of 'secondary literature.' However, insofar as the articulation of the philosophy of Liberalism is an ongoing affair, contemporary titles from the likes of Galston, Gaus, and Rawls, for example, can hardly be deemed 'secondary,' so the appellation is in regard to the first wave or historically classical works of Liberalism (Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, etc.) that are not included here.
