Synopsis: Winner of the 1990 Foundations of Political Theory Section of the American Political Science Association "First Book Award"

Now available in paperback with a new preface by the author, this award-winning book breaks new ground by challenging traditional concepts of community in political theory. William Corlett brings the diverse (and sometimes contradictory) work of Foucault and Derrida to bear on the thought of Pocock, Burke, Lincoln, and McIntyre, among others, to move beyond the conventional dichotomy of "individual vs. community," arguing instead that community is best advanced within a politics of difference.

Review: "No one has yet done what Corlett has set out to do. "Community Without Unity" puts together considerations from traditional political theory with both analyses and methods of Pocock/Skinner, concern with the historical context of discourse, "and" the philosophy/criticism that we associate with contemporary French work. A very important piece of work."--Tracy B. Strong, University of California, San Diego
