An Intellectual History of Liberalism
Pierre Manent
Translated by Rebecca Balinski
With a foreword by Jerrold Seigel

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"Manent's whirlwind tour through the major works of modern political philosophy attempts to answer the question, "Where are we heading?" . . . Manent's approach . . . exhibits a profundity not often encountered in contemporary Anglo-American political philosophy. . . . [his] book can be placed proudly next to the classic works of two of his teachers: Raymond Aron and Leo Strauss."--Crisis

"He has not offered us one of those academic tomes that seem more concerned with scoring points against rivals in the academy than with the material itself. Instead, Manent has, in 10 pointed "lessons," taken up the central questions animating some of the major works of modernity. . . . [Manent's work] is filled with remarkable insights into the nature of liberalism."--Adam Wolfson, The Public Interest
