On Political Obligation

Exile marks a boundary in relation to obligation and loyalty. While in classical times exile sometimes served democratic aims and purposes, as Shklar illustrates with reference to the practices of ostracism, in modern times exile and its conditions are very differently conceived. The author demonstrates the varieties and complications of modern exile by drawing on a number of modern cases, such as the Dreyfus affair, the case of the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, the treatment of Jews in World War II, and Willy Brandt and the possibilities of resistance against the Nazi regime.

Keywords:   exile, limits of loyalty and obligation, modern exile, Dreyfus
