(Cambridge: Polity Press, 2012), 220 pp. isbn 9780745661308 (pbk). Hardback/Paperback: £55.00/17.99.Angle’s exciting new book offers more than an overview of contemporary debates on Confucianism. By engaging both past and present global debates in Anglo-American philosophy, Chinese thought, and social and legal theory, the book develops its own muscular and unapologetically “progressive” version of Confucianism which takes on difficult questions raised by contemporary commitments to egalitarianism, democracy, and rule of law. It will therefore be of interest to any philosopher or social theorist interested in these ideas, particularly in how such ideas might be challenged or enriched by engagement with broader global traditions. This is especially true in that Angle—in contrast to many contemporary scholars who claim to offer a modernized version of Confucianism—sustains a truly rigorous and philosophical argument which does more than simply throw together ideas randomly cherry-picked from classical sources or contemporary debates. The book is therefore distinguished for both its scholarly rigor and for its engagement of Confucianism as it evolved across time and space.Angle identifies two related goals for his book: one is to develop a “progressive” version of Confucianism, and the other is to make Confucianism applicable to a broader audience beyond China studies
