Lawbook Exchange, Limited, 2001 - Political Science - 629 pages

Widely read and used as a political science textbook, this is the best known of Lieber's work. He was a prominent political philosopher who helped lay the foundation for the study of political science in the United States. Renowned for his theory of civil liberty presented here, which combined an appreciation for the English concept of decentralized political institutions with the German idea of an overall national purpose, he bridged the intellectual gap between Europe and America. Enlarged edition in one volume, having first been published in two volumes in 1853. xiv, 629 pp.
