Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Enduring Liberalism reflects Robert Booth Fowler's very personal combination of erudition, subtlety, and good judgment. I think his basic thesis--that liberalism, largely rejected as a public philosophy by intellectuals, has been triumphant in private life--is not only accurate but decisively important in contemporary politics. This is a needed book."--Wilson Carey McWilliams, author of The Idea of Fraternity in America

"Fowler's scholarship is vast and takes us into areas political theorists do not often explore, including mass public opinion. His writing is lucid and always fair, and the bibliography alone is worth the admission price. Some of his positions will be controversial, but this is a book that should be read by anyone concerned with contemporary American thought."--James P. Young, author of Reconsidering American Liberalism: The Troubled Odyssey of the Liberal Idea

Format: Hardcover
Apart from having read this great, informative work, I had this man in an Integrated Liberal Studies class at the UW-Madison, where he teaches. I have never experienced the level of communication, passion or knowledge that Booth Fowler can exude.
