"What is appealing about this book is the way in which it brings Berlin's essay squarely into the context of contemporary debates in political philosophy. Whether they are admirers or critics (or both), the authors in this collection show how Berlin's essay speaks to contemporary debates involving issues such as feminism and republicanism, and illustrate how the essay can be employed as a theoretical building-block in the development of new theories of political freedom. The authors' contributions prove that Berlin's essay still provides an interesting and vital point of departure for political theorizing."
