The Liberal Tradition in American Thought: An Anthology

Front Cover
Walter E. Volkomer
Putnam, 1969 - Liberalism - 352 pages
This anthology traces, age by age and issue by issue, the liberal position in American politics. It clearly shows that one of the most striking facets of contemporary liberalism is the relatively recent origin of its main beliefs. This book highlights the liberals' constant championing of individualism and illustrates how changes in politics and government have led to confusion about the real nature of liberalism in American politics.
