In this chapter Shklar discusses modern forms of loyalty and disloyalty, particularly as they occur in the context of social groups and entities such as clan, nation, race, and class. She draws on the example of the United States to illustrate the complications that have arisen for this new political society whose population is mainly made up of immigrants.
