The book is an exemplar of close and careful arguement, fairness, and clarity.
Klosko's analysis is based on a commonsense idea of fairness, rather than on policy consequences and outcomes. It recognizes the fuzzy―even tragic―nature of political reality. In a less than perfect world, we must be (and generally are) satisfied with 'good enough. The book is an exemplar of close and careful arguement, fairness, and clarity. Further, even with the developments over the last twelve years, the book retains the virtue of being a terrific introduction to the topics of political obligation and legitimacy more generally.

Current debate has it that a theory of political obligation grounded on the premises of liberal political theory does not exist.

Whether political obligation is the central or fundamental problem of political philosophy, as some have maintained (. McPherson), may well be doubted.
