Description: In this collection of essays, Stephen Holmes challenges commonly held assumptions about liberal theory. By reconstructing liberalism's original historical context, Holmes demonstrates that its basic principles provide a plausible foundation for the development of democratic, regulatory, and redistributionist politics in the modern era.

Holmes argues that the aspirations of liberal democracy -- including individual liberty, the equal dignity of citizens, and a tolerance for diversity -- are best understood in relation to two central themes of classical liberal theory: the psychological motivations of individuals and the necessary constraints on individual passions provided by institutions. Paradoxically, these institutional restraints enable, rather than limit, effective democracy.
