    Bibliographical note

    Prof. Philip Pettit (Princeton) 'McBride is a sure-footed guide to the recognition literature and is a clear-eyed judge of the claims to be found there. This is a very fine book.'

    Prof. Peter Jones (Newcastle) 'Cillian McBride's penetrating and broad-ranging study gives a sympathetic hearing to the claims of recognition but also exposes a multitude of errors and false assumptions in the thinking that has dominated the subject. His insightful analysis and acute criticism deliver a radical reappraisal of how we should respond to demands for recognition.'

    Dr Simon Thompson (University of the West of England) 'In this book, McBride successfully performs a difficult feat: he gives a wide-ranging account of the various philosophical, political and sociological aspects of the idea of recognition, while at the same time presenting and providing a persuasive defence of his own "interactive" conception of recognition.'
