Zusammenfassung
How has liberalism, the grand democratic ideal, come to be a dirty word? This book shows us what antiliberalism means in the modern world--where it comes from, whom it serves, and why it speaks with such a forceful, if ever changing, voice.

Inhalt

Introduction: what is antiliberalism? Part 1 The antiliberals: Maistre and the antiliberal tradition; Schmitt - the debility of liberalism; Strauss - truths for philosophers alone; MacIntyre - the antiliberal catechism; anti-Promotheanism - the case of Christopher Lasch; Unger - antiliberalism unbound; the community trap. Part 2 Misunderstanding the liberal past: antiliberals as historians of liberal thought; the "atomization" of society?; indifference toward the common good?; the eclipse of authority?; the public realm sacrificed to the private?; economic man?; the selfishness of rights?; moral skepticism?; the crimes of reason?; antonym substitution.
