Publisher's Description

Ideas about the nature of liberty and a normative moral tradition lie at the heart of many contemporary political controversies. Because they are concerned with core principles, these debates can be vigorous and highly charged. Nowhere has this been more evident in our time than in the lively exchanges between conservatives and libertarians. Like no other single work, Freedom and Virtue explores what unites and divides the adherents of these two important American traditions—shedding much light on our current political landscape.



Author Bio

George W. Carey was a professor of government at Georgetown University and the author of The Federalist: Design for a Constitutional Republic, In Defense of the Constitution, and (with Willmoore Kendall) The Basic Symbols of the American Political Tradition.

Editorial Reviews

"For those who want an introduction to the debate, this is a good place to start. The rare sight of both sides critiquing each other can be eye-opening." —World
 
"In recent years . . . a new debate has broken out within conservative ranks, pitting traditional ’moral conservatives’ against a new group of ’libertarian conservatives’. This is primarily an intellectual debate within a small group of writers and scholars. . . . Nevertheless, political philosophy—unlike poetry, according to Auden—does make things happen, and this slim volume does give one the flavor of a debate that remains largely beneath the surface of American politics." —The Times Literary Supplement
 
"[A] succinct primer on the two coexisting political visions that long have animated the American republic." —The University Bookman
