Summary

In moving beyond the theses of liberalism and neoliberalism that have provided philosophical support to free-market economics from the 1970s until the present, this book seeks to re-theorize social democracy by reconsidering issues such as totalitarianism, freedom, the role of the state, and the political arrangements needed for the future.
