The Sacred Fire of Liberty: Republicanism, Liberalism, and the Law


Add your own review!

Overview

"Republicanism, liberalism and the rule of law have a long and tangled common history in the development of western institutions. All three claim to secure ""liberty"" for citizens or subjects of the state, without always agreeing about what this should mean in practice. This book sets out to place the concept of ""liberty"" into the context of its political origins, and to explain the structures and vocabulary of liberty that are still prominent in legal and political debate. The author argues that, contrary to the common opposition of liberal and republican traditions as rival conceptions of political legitimacy, the two are closely linked and have common roots in developing western conceptions of liberty; and that they eventually diverged over strictures of governmenmt following the French Revolution."
