Abstract

This book brings together an international group of historians, philosophers, and political scientists to evaluate the impact of Michael Freeden‘s work and to reassess its central claims. Although the book contains several highlights, Mark Fisher feels that the pervasive back-slapping and high-fiving characteristic of a festschrift works largely to undermine the volume as a critical study. Liberalism and Ideology: Essays in Honour of Michael Freeden. Ben Jackson and Marc Stears (eds.). Oxford University Press. February 2012.
