BOOK ABSTRACT:

Amazon Book Description1

  1. Liberalism dominates today's politics just as it decisively shaped the American and European past.
  2. This engrossing history of liberalism – the first in English for many decades – traces liberalism's ideals, successes, and failures through the lives and ideas of a rich cast of European and American thinkers and politicians, from the early nineteenth century to today.
  3. An enlightening account of a vulnerable but critically important political creed, Liberalism provides the vital historical and intellectual background for hard thinking about liberal democracy's future.
