Editorial Reviews


"Liberalism Undressed is Lieberman's masterwork, a brilliant, provactive and mature product of decades of thought about some of the most fundamental issues of our time or any time. ... His book belongs on the shelf next to the works of John Rawls, Robert Nozick, and Ronald Dworkin."--New York Law Journal

"In Liberalism Undressed, a book deeply immersed in the political and legal thought of the last several centuries, Jethro Lieberman revives to powerful effect JS Mill's largely ignored "harm principle." With great clarity, elegance, wit and a good deal of common sense, Lieberman demonstrates that we can find in Mill's principle a justification for liberal government. By addressing a wide range of public policy issues with the harm principle in hand, he derives a potent theory of state powers. Fearless in his rejection of the arguments of a multitude of contemporary pundits and theorists, Lieberman offers the reader a humane guide that should enable us to preserve the liberty of liberalism in a world of necessary interdependence and government involvement."--Arlene Saxonhouse, Caroline Robbins Collegiate Professor of Political Science, University of Michigan

"Jethro Lieberman has, for many years, been one of our most accomplished and thoughtful
commentators on the law. He brings to legal, political, and cultural analysis the acumen of a philosopher, the common-sense wisdom of a practitioner, and the flair of a literary stylist. In an age when "liberal" has become an epithet, Lieberman brilliantly reformulates and recaptures the kind of liberalism that Edmund Burke articulated two centuries ago, and that even conservatives like me can cherish."--Stephen B. Presser, Raoul Berger Professor of Legal History, Northwestern University School of Law

"As one reads through Jethro Lieberman's Liberalism Undressed, it becomes increasingly clear that this is the work of an extraordinarily wise, insightful and well-educated person. It also helps that Lieberman is a splendid writer."--Yale Kamisar, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan Law School

"Liberalism Undressed is a thought-provoking exploration into the enduring relevance of the classical liberal political ideal in the modern world. The reader will come away with valuable insights into the proper role of government in a free society."--Senator Joseph I. Lieberman
