In this review, I attempt to engage critically with two issues raised in the book: first, the theoretical limits of a public reason based on disagreement; and second, the potential extent of Indigenous self-determination within Ivison's model of the State. The discussion of these two issues leads me to conclude that the conjunction of postcolonialism and liberalism cannot be sustained theoretically, though the conjunction serves as a useful polemic for teasing out the limits and the potential of liberal political theory.
