With the fall of communism and the recent conservative ascendancy in the United States and Europe, many political players scrambled to redefine themselves with freshly "spun" labels, but Bobbio asserts that the reported demise of the left and the right has been greatly exaggerated. Bobbio constructs a historically informed, analytic division of the political universe along two foundational axes, from equality to inequality, from liberty to authoritarianism. He charts the past and present tendencies of the left and the right, in both their moderate and extreme forms.
