About this book

Judith Shklar called for a radical shift in political theory, toward a view of the history of ideas through the lens of exile. Hess takes this lens and applies it to Shklar's own life and theoretical work.

Reviews

“Hess’s monograph is the pioneer. That gives it a deserved prominence. … The Political Theory of Judith N. Shklar. Exile from Exile is a short, lucid introduction to the thought of a writer who was always something of an anomaly within American political theory. … Andreas Hess has written a searching, meticulous book on what shklar said.” (Peter Baehr, Society, January, 2016)



"A compelling intellectual biography of one the most original political thinkers of the post-war generation. Hess draws insightfully on Shklar's understanding of exile and emigration to help articulate her distinctive vision of social and political life." - Bernard Yack, Lerman Neubauer Professor of Democracy and Public Policy, Brandeis University, USA

"This superb book is a worthy tribute to a major political theorist by one of the leading European experts on North American social and political thought." William Outhwaite, Professor of Sociology, Newcastle University, UK
