Description
Focusing on the range of contemporary ideas that run from conservative to liberal to radical conceptions of state and society, British historian and essayist Perry Anderson considers here the "meanings, boundaries and relevance of the categories Right, Center, and Left in our world's current political climate" (Publishers Weekly). He examines the theories of major minds of the 20th-century Right, including Carl Schmitt, Leo Strauss, and Friedrich von Hayek and such liberal philosophers as John Rawls, Jürgen Habermas, and Norberto Bobbio. Anderson also discusses significant figures from the left from various disciplines: historians Edward Thompson, Robert Brenner, and Eric Hobsbawm; the classicist Sebastiano Timpanaro; the sociologist Göran Therborn; and the novelist Gabriel García Márquez.

"The most polymathic, and the most profound, essayist currently wielding a pen."—Atlantic Monthly

Dazzling and unyielding—Anderson remains an inspiring example of thinking in the world, about the world and for the world."—The Nation
