Modern Free Society and Its Nemesis examines contemporary free society in relation to conservatism as its possible negation. Analyzing the impact of conservatism on such attributes of a free society as civil liberties, political democracy, and economic freedom, it redefines a free society and its constitutive principles of liberty, equality, and justice. It also reconsiders conservatism, including its social foundations, characteristics, and types, as well as its relations to liberalism. Milan Zafirovski concentrates specifically on the effects of conservatism on the civil sphere, political democracy, and the economy as integral elements of a free society.

Editorial Reviews

James Ronald Stanfield
Zafirovski's book provides much needed clarification of liberalism and conservatism and draws attention to the myriad present dangers of institutional or cultural lag in this era of Great Capitalist Restoration. This is an important book which should enjoy wide attention in the contemporary political economy.
