Review

Kalkman's concept of timeless freedom is of much interest who all want an effective state characterized by free, empowered citizens who have the possibility to shape their own futures . . . It is a must read. --Hans van Baalen, MEP, President of Liberal International

I was particularly struck by his strong case for liberals to take on the cause of freedom for future generations, what he calls a "timeless" concept of freedom . . . This is certainly a book to be read by those who are still motivated by a liberal sensibility and want to engage in the renewal of liberal policy and practice in a global environment. --Honourable Lloyd Axworthy, Ph.D., Former Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Past-Director of the Liu Centre for the Study of Global Issues, President of the University of Winnipeg

Broad in scope, this clearly-written short book offers a strong defense of the need for a more defined and updated concept of "positive freedom" and describes an intriguing framework for the role of the state in supporting rights and responsibilities that, crucially, extend to future generations. --Dr. Anne M. Pearson, Professor at McMaster University
