The life and times of liberal democracy by C. B Macpherson ( Book )
37 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this brief but powerful book, acclaimed political philosopher C.B. Macpherson sets out in bold relief the essence of liberal democracy, both as it is currently conceived and as it might be reimagined. Macpherson argues that from its beginnings liberal democracy has accepted the underpinning principle of capitalist societies, that the "market maketh man." 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 [Macpherson writes] 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 Wynford edition includes a new Introduction by Frank Cunningham of the University of Toronto

"In his final book, one of the twentieth century's most respected political philosophers returns to his core concerns--the state, class, and property--to consider the problematic future of liberal democracy under market capitalism. The result is not only (in the words of reviewer Thomas J. Lewis) a "bleak prognosis" for liberalism's prospects but a sustained argument that a profound rethinking of the economic and political underpinnings of Western society is essential to the creation of a more promising future."--Publisher's description
Second treatise of government by John Locke ( Book )
4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The central principles of what today is broadly known as political liberalism were made current in large part by Locke's "Second Treatise of Government" (1690). The principles of individual liberty, the rule of law, government by consent of the people, and the right to private property are taken for granted as fundamental to the human condition now. Most liberal theorists writing today look back to Locke as the source of their ideas. Some maintain that religious fundamentalism, 'post-modernism', and socialism are today the only remaining ideological threats to liberalism. To the exte
