    B. A. Haddock, Peri Roberts & Peter Sutch (eds.) (2006). Principles and Political Order: The Challenge of Diversity. Routledge.
    The liberal and democratic political order is underpinned by universal principles of justice. However, the universality of these principles is now being questioned and undermined by challenges from postmodernism, communitarianism, multiculturalism and other forms of anti-foundationalism.

In this original account, Peri Roberts argues that political constructivism defends a conception of objective and universal principles that set normative limits to justifiable political practice. _Political Constructivism_ explores this understanding in two ways.
