Summary
  • "A crucial new big-picture framework that answers the question of how liberty flourishes in some states but falls to authoritarianism or anarchy in others--and explains how it can continue to thrive despite new threats"--
  • The most fundamental definition of liberty is that people are free from violence, intimidation, and other demeaning acts. Acemoglu and Robinson examine how and why human societies have achieved liberty-- or failed to achieve it. Believing that liberty is a basic aspiration of all human beings, they examine why it has been rare in history-- and is rare today. -- adapted from foreword
