Review:

Intensely provocative and valuable.

Splendid.... Mr. Zakaria flies his colors bright and bold.

In his brave and ambitious book, Fareed Zakaria has updated Tocqueville.... The range of Zakaria's knowledge is impressive.... It deserves a wide readership.

With a command of history and contemporary politics on a global scale, Zakaria persuasively shows that democracy by itself is not the answer to peace and prosperity.... Essential reading for anyone worried about the promotion and preservation of liberty.

Zakaria's provocative and wide-ranging book is eminently worth reading.... His book displays a kind of argumentation, grounded in history and political philosophy, of which there is precious little these days, particularly among opinion columnists.

Fareed Zakaria, one of the most brilliant young writers, has produced a fascinating and thought-provoking book on the impact of Western constitutional principles on the global order.--Henry Kissinger

Synopsis:

A modern classic that uses historical analysis to shed light on the present, "The Future of Freedom" is "a lucid and intelligent account of what freedom might mean as a guiding principle for US foreign policy" ("Prospect"). It enjoyed extended stays on "The New York Times", "The Wall Street Journal" and "Washington Post" bestseller lists. Prescient in laying out the distinction between democracy and liberty, the book now contains a new afterword on the United States' occupation of Iraq.Hailed as "stimulating" by the "Financial Times", 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.
