Freedom and its Enemies : The Tragedy of Liberty, Hardback Book

Freedom and its Enemies : The Tragedy of Liberty Hardback

Edited by Renata Uitz

Part of the Issues in Constitutional Law (ICL) series


Contemporary Western constitutional systems promised a liberty-based political and social order.

Yet over time, liberty has turned into a self-destructive force. The authors of this volume reflect on the demise of liberty (and with it liberty based constitutional orders) from the perspective of political practice and through the lenses of political theory, law and human rights.

The first four chapters of the collection reflect on key problems from the broader perspective of constitutionalism and liberty.

The following four chapters address the tension between liberty and dignity, while the last two chapters bring case studies on particularly challenging issues to the discussion.
