The life and times of liberal democracy by C. B Macpherson( Book )

76 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this brief but powerful book, acclaimed political philosopher C.B. Macpherson sets out in bold relief the essence of liberal democracy, both as it is currently conceived and as it might be reimagined. Macpherson argues that from its beginnings liberal democracy has accepted the underpinning principle of capitalist societies, that the "market maketh man." If that remains the central assumption of liberal democracy, Macpherson declares, then as an organizing framework for society, liberal democracy has reached the end of its useful life. But if a broader concept of liberal democracy is accepted-"if [Macpherson writes] liberal democracy is taken to mean a society striving to ensure that all its members are equally free to realize their capabilities"--The great days of liberal democracy may yet lie ahead

In his 1964 CBC Massey Lectures C.B. Macpherson examines the rival ideas of democracy - the communist, Third World, and Western-liberal variants - and their impact on one another.

The rise and fall of economic justice, and other papers by C. B Macpherson( Book )

35 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his final book, one of the twentieth century's most respected political philosophers returns to his core concerns--the state, class, and property--to consider the problematic future of liberal democracy under market capitalism. The result is not only (in the words of reviewer Thomas J. Lewis) a "bleak prognosis" for liberalism's prospects but a sustained argument that a profound rethinking of the economic and political underpinnings of Western society is essential to the creation of a more promising future."--Publisher's description
Two treatises of government by John Locke( Book )

8 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central principles of what today is broadly known as political liberalism were made current in large part by Locke's "Second Treatise of Government" (1690). The principles of individual liberty, the rule of law, government by consent of the people, and the right to private property are taken for granted as fundamental to the human condition now. Most liberal theorists writing today look back to Locke as the source of their ideas. Some maintain that religious fundamentalism, 'post-modernism', and socialism are today the only remaining ideological threats to liberalism. To the exte

Democracy in Alberta; social credit and the party system by C. B Macpherson( Book )

41 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Democracy in Alberta was the first book by the hugely influential political scientist C.B. Macpherson (1911-1987). In this study, Macpherson examines the distinctive quasi-party political system that emerged in Alberta in the first half of the twentieth century, represented by the United Farmers of Alberta and Social Credit governments and the movements behind them. The author presents the UFA and Social Credit, which grew independently of federal politics, as having produced a new species of democratic governance in Canada and he develops an innovative theory of the party system in the context of national politics at the time he wrote the book in 1953. In addition to offering an original analysis of the party system and Alberta's political structures and institutions, Democracy in Alberta presents a fascinating micro-history of the social and economic characteristics of Alberta. An introduction by Nelson Wiseman contextualizes the original publication and discusses the unique characteristics of Alberta politics still evident to this day."--
