Overview

margaret Gilbert Offers An Incisive New Approach To A Classic Problem Of Political Philosophy: When And Why Should I Do What The Law Tells Me To Do? Do I Have Special Obligations To Conform To The Laws Of My Own Country And If So, Why? In What Sense, If Any, Must I Fight In Wars In Which My Country Is Engaged, If Ordered To Do So, Or Suffer The Penalty For Law Breaking—including The Death Penalty? Gilbert's Accessible Book Offers A Provocative And Compelling Case In Favor Of Citizens' Obligations To The State, While Examining How These Can Be Squared With Self-interest And Other Competing Considerations.
