This book uses it in the classic sense of a constitutional democracy with protections for individual rights. The book is eye opening because it teaches that the evolution of liberal democracy has had less to do with idealism than it has with the enlightened self-interest of the merchant class.

This book uses it in the classic sense of a constitutional democracy with protections for individual rights. The book is somewhat dense reading (lots of ideas tightly compacted) but relatively short, and a worthwhile read for anyone who is politically active. 6 people found this helpful.

In this brief but powerful book, acclaimed political philosopher . Macpherson sets out in bold relief the essence of liberal democracy, both as it is currently conceived and as it might be reimagined. If that remains the central assumption of liberal democracy, Macpherson declares, then as an organizing framework for society, liberal democracy has reached the end of its useful life. But if a broader concept of liberal democracy is accepted-"if liberal democracy is taken to mean a society striving to ensure that all its members are equally free to realize their capabilities"-the great days of liberal democracy may yet lie ahead.

The author traces the background of current liberal-democratic theory, explains how the concept of democracy became both embedded in the shifting ideas of social equality and increasingly dependent on the mechanism of capitalism, and points the way to a more participatory democracy.

This book was required reading for a class on political, economic, and environmental processes at The Evergreen State College. The word "liberal" in the title should not be confused with the modern use of the word, i.e., liberal vs. conservative. This book uses it in the classic sense of a constitutional democracy with protections for individual rights. The book is eye opening because it teaches that the evolution of liberal democracy has had less to do with idealism than it has with the enlightened self-interest of the merchant class. The book is somewhat dense reading (lots of ideas tightly compacted) but relatively short, and a worthwhile read for anyone who is politically active.
