About the Book

This book argues that the liberal concept of rights presupposes and is grounded in an individualistic culture or shared way of relating, and that this particular shared way of relating emerged only in the wake of the Reformation in the modern West.

Reviews

'The book is rich in its review of the Western and Chinese political cultures, and can serve as a reference point for those who study or research across disciplines of political theory, comparative politics and Chinese studies.' - Political Studies Review
