It begins with a personal analysis of the intellectual, and often political, reasons as to why and how the author chose to engage in certain critical arguments. The text is then divided into three sections each with a distinctive theme: state and society- constructing polities- and varieties of democracies. The introduction and articles ask whether, both for intellectual and political reasons, there are strong grounds for questioning both Rawls and Huntington on religion and democracy, Riker on federalism, and Gellner on multi nationalism.

The volume contains articles on civil society, political society, economic society, and a usable state. The possibility of multiple and complementary political identities is argued for.
