About this book


Under the conditions of economic globalization, the prevailing liberal philosophy of governance is becoming increasingly problematic. Liberty Beyond Neo-Liberalism critiques three varieties of liberal engagement with the processes of globalization and their ability to temper the harmful effects of the process. Steven Slaughter proposes an alternate approach, global civic republicanism, which seeks to retrieve the civic and public character of the state in order to protect it from economic vulnerability and to constitute a resilient form of liberty.
