This vital new liberal account of multiculturalism combines an analysis of the policy dilemmas faced by multiethnic states around the world with a philosophical consideration of multiculturalism and nationalism. Jacob T. Levy boldly argues that liberalism should not be centrally concerned with either preserving or transcending cultural communities, practices, and identities. Rather, he contends that liberalism should focus on mitigating evils such as inter-ethnic civil wars and state violence against ethnic minorities. In order for this "multiculturalism of fear" to be grounded in the realities of ethnic politics and conflict, it must take seriously the importance people place on their ethnic identities and cultural practices without falling into a celebration of cultural belonging. Levy applies his approach to a variety of policy problems, including the regulation of sexist practices inside cultural communities, secession and national self-determination, land rights, and customary law, and draws on cases from such diverse states as Australia, Canada, Israel, India, South Africa, and the United States.

Jacob T. Levy boldly argues that liberalism should not be centrally concerned with either preserving or transcending cultural communities. That is, the best we can hope for in a world diverse in ethnicities, religions, and states is to avoid the "supreme evils" of cruelty and humiliation. These ethnicities, religious traditions, and states overlap with and interpenetrate one another, have deep histories with one another that may involve obligations or antagonisms, and have unavoidable conflicts with one another. The questions of multiculturalism can thus not be simply avoided.

Liberalism should not be centrally concerned either with preserving or with transcending cultural communities, practices, and identities. Rather, it should focus on mitigating evils such as inter-ethnic civil wars, cruel practices internal to cultural communities, and stateviolence against ethnic minorities.
