I do not know a more precise or more careful account of the political and intellectual-historical context in which the debate about constitutional patriotism unfolded initially. Above all Jan-Werner Müller offers a masterful interpretation of this important concept, which clarifies many misunderstandings.--Jürgen Habermas
Jan-Werner Müller provides a wonderfully lucid (and for the American reader absolutely necessary) account of the German history of 'constitutional patriotism, ' and then he develops and applies this important idea to the circumstances of the European Union. He asks us to imagine a mode of attachment to 'Europe' based not on blood or faith but on civic engagement, democratic decision making, and the appropriation and critique of a common (and sometimes not so common) history. This is exemplary political theory: an argument about things that matter here and now.--Michael Walzer, Institute for Advanced Study
