Booknews
Rousseau's unique set of ideas about liberty, as paradoxical today as they were in 18th-century France, are discussed in 13 essays from a colloquium at Cambridge University in September 1988. Among the topics are Rousseau and Tocqueville on democratic legitimacy and illegitimacy, the problem of sovereignty and the limits of political obligation, and fanciful liberties we have lost. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
