Summary The revival of liberal thought in France during the 1970s and 1980s is a remarkable development in contemporary European intellectual history. In this book, British, American, and French scholars offer a fresh take on twentieth-century liberal revival and examine how neo-liberalism developed and influenced contemporary politics and policy.
