Product description

Review

'Liberty Before Liberalism is a meditation both on the methods of intellectual historiography and an exemplar of them. Nobody who knows of Skinner or his work … can doubt his command of his subject, or his acute generosity to other scholars.' The Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

In this extended essay Quentin Skinner seeks both to excavate, and to vindicate, the neo-Roman theory of free citizens and free states as it developed in early-modern Britain, and also to provide a powerful defence of the nature, purposes and goals of intellectual history and the history of ideas.
