About the Authors
  • Polls suggest up to twenty percent of Americans describe their beliefs as 'libertarian', but libertarians are often derided as heartless Social Darwinists or naïve idealists. This illuminating handbook brings together scholars from a range of fields (from law to philosophy to politics to economics) and political perspectives (right, left, and center) to consider how classical liberal principles can help us understand and potentially address a variety of pressing social problems including immigration, climate change, the growth of the prison population, and a host of others. Anyone interested in political theory or practical law and politics will find this book an essential resource for understanding this major strand of American politics.

    • Provides a foundation to the meaning of 'classical liberal' and will serve as an introductory work for students, scholars or policy makers interested in political theory or policy
    • Contains material from a variety of disciplines, with an interdisciplinary approach that will appeal to a wide ranging audience
    • Explores many current policy debates using classical liberal ideas to form new solutions to old problems
    • Includes works from classical liberal thinkers, as well as critics of classical liberalism
