Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Investigates the process by which a major political problem is suddenly resolved after conventional wisdom has deemed it intractable. Cites as examples the thought of Roger Williams on religious liberty, James Madison on reconciling liberty and a large republic, John C. Calhoun and protecting minority interests, Karl Marx and human emancipation, the European Union, and the global movement against genocide. Finds in each a prophetic emphasis on life-affirming values such as peace, freedom, justice, prosperity, and creativity. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
