Summary

Summary

The "New Liberalism" of the late nineteenth/early twentieth century is explored in this original collection of essays by leading scholars. This neglected strand of the liberal tradition demonstrates that rather than being irreparably individualist, liberalism can accommodate community as well as rights and liberty. These essays provide exciting insights into current debates in the liberal tradition and will be of great interest to students and scholars of political theory and the history of political thought.
