Summary:
Product description-- Political speech in the United States is undergoing a crisis.

Contents:
The Land of rights
The Illusion of absoluteness
The Lone rights-bearer
The Missing language of responsibility
The Missing dimension of sociality
Rights insularity
Refining the rhetoric of rights.
