9780393047646: The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad

“A work of tremendous originality and insight. ... Makes you see the world differently.”―Washington Post

A modern classic that uses historical analysis to shed light on the present, The Future of Freedom is, as the Chicago Tribune put it, "essential reading for anyone worried about the promotion and preservation of liberty." Hailed by the New York Times as "brave and ambitious...updated Tocqueville," it enjoyed extended stays on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post bestseller lists and has been translated into eighteen languages. Prescient in laying out the distinction between democracy and liberty, the book now contains a new afterword on the United States's occupation of Iraq.

"Intensely provocative and valuable," according to BusinessWeek, with an easy command of history, philosophy, and current affairs, The Future of Freedom calls for a restoration of the balance between liberty and democracy and shows how politics and government can be made effective and relevant for our time.

About the Author:

Fareed Zakaria has been called "the most influential foreign policy adviser of his generation" (Esquire). He is the Emmy-nominated host of CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS, contributing editor for The Atlantic, a columnist for the Washington Post, and the best-selling author of The Post-American World and The Future of Freedom. He lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

This provacative book is written by NEWSWEEK columnist and television commentator Fareed Zakaria. Ned Schmidtke's fine reading is even-paced and clear and fits well with the material. While his voice is not particularly dynamic, it is appropriate for the text. Zakaria challenges conventional wisdom on the link between economic and political liberalism and political democracy. He traces the development of liberalism and democracy in a host of countries around the world and then turns to questions about the functioning of democracy in America, ultimately challenging some of our assumptions about democracy always being the best form of government.
