The culmination of thirty years of reflection on modern politics, Metamorphoses of the City is Pierre Manent’s Summa. By tracing the transformation of Western political form from the Greek city-state to the nation state, then to our increasingly post-national world, he raises profound questions about the future of self-government. A beautifully conceived and deeply unsettling book.—Mark Lilla, Columbia University
