Endorsements for The Virtues of Exit

"From Plato to African American political history, from Thoreau to multiculturalism, Jennet Kirkpatrick’s masterful book blends careful scholarship with contemporary concerns and manages a rare achievement: the introduction of a new political category. This is what all political theory should be: powerful, urgent, and important." --James Morone, Brown University


"In The Virtues of Exit, Jennet Kirkpatrick brings one of the more important conceptual approaches to political behavior in recent years--one that employs the notions of exit, voice, and loyalty--into dialogue with canonical works of political theory and pressing twenty-first century issues. Insightful and wide ranging, this book has important things to say." --Andrew Murphy, Rutgers University
