This collection of nineteen of Kenneth Minogue's essays, written over a period of more than fifty years, celebrates the advent of modern liberty. They describe the conditions under which liberty and individuality can flourish and the threats to liberty's flourishing in our time. Minogue offers a powerful critique of political correctness, of ideological flights from reality, and of the deformities of study in the modern university.
Timothy Fuller is Professor of Political Science at Colorado College where he teaches political philosophy. He is a leading authority on the thought of Michael Oakeshott, and a friend and collaborator with Kenneth Minogue for nearly forty years.
