'Never before had someone addressed such abstract topics with such fluency and intensity-these lectures, while presupposing no specialist expertise, introduce-some of the key issues in modern political theory in an enthusiastic and quite unpatronising way.' Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph

About the Author

Sir Isaiah Berlin was born in Riga, Latvia, in 1909. In 1921 his family came to England, and he was educated at St Paul's School and Corpus Christi College, Oxford. At Oxford he was a Fellow of New College, Professor of Social and Political Theory, and founding President of Wolfson College. He also held the Presidency of the British Academy. As an exponent of the history of ideas he was awarded the Erasmus, Lippincott and Agnelli Prizes; he also received the Jerusalem Prize for his lifelong defence of civil liberties. He died in November 1997. Henry Hardy, a Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford, is one of Isaiah Berlin's Literary Trustees. He has edited several other books by Berlin.


These lectures are astonishing for their lucidity and power * Wall Street Journal *
Berlin at his best: forceful without being bombastic, energetic without exaggerating, erudite without showing off -- Peter Watson * Times Higher Educational Supplement *
This is one of the most important books on the history of ideas in Berlin's oeuvre... Extremely compelling -- Mark Lilla, University of Chicago
