Liberalism, multiculturalism and toleration

edited by John Horton

The publication of Salman Rushdie's novel "The Satanic Verses" has provoked fierce debate about the scope of toleration in a modern multicultural society. This volume explores the philosophical issues arising from the debate from a variety of points of view. It includes both general discussions of the relationship between liberalism, toleration and multiculturalism, and several essays devoted specifically to the implications of the Rushdie affair for liberal political theory and its practical commitment to toleration. John Horton is also the author of "Political Obligation" and co-editor (with Susan Mendus) of "Aspects of Toleration" and "John Locke: A Letter Concerning Toleration in Focus", and co-editor (with Peter Nicholson) of "Toleration: Philosophy and Practice".
