Now Available for Pre-Ordering

From University of Notre Dame Press:
What Happened in and to Moral Philosophy in the Twentieth Century?
Philosophical Essays in Honor of Alasdair MacIntyre
Edited by Fran O'Rourke

I am considering getting a copy of this - Virtue and Politics: Alasdair MacIntyre’s Revolutionary Aristotelianism, edited by Paul Blackledge and Kelvin Knight

But will the contributors to the volume give too much of a "leftist spin" on MacIntyre? Is investigating if this is this the case and reading MacIntyre's response worth the price of the book, even with 40% off (until the end of the month)? I think I will see if it is available at a local university library first. Here's a review of the book at NDPR.

Another book I will delay purchasing: Reason, Tradition, and the Good: MacIntyre's Tradition-Constituted Reason and Frankfurt School Critical Theory by Jeffery L. Nicholas
