Praise for Liberalism: A Counter-History

"A brilliant exercise in unmasking liberal pretensions, surveying over three centuries with magisterial command of the sources."
--Financial Times

"Stimulatingly uncovers the contradictions of an ideology that is much too self-righteously invoked."
--Pankaj Mishra, Guardian

"A book of wide reference and real erudition."
--Times Literary Supplement

"The book is a historically grounded, very accessible critique of liberalism, complementing a growing literature critical of liberalism."

"There is always something to learn from books by Domenico Losurdo. And this is no exception."
--Corriere della Sera

"Vast historical research recommended for the depth of the 'excavation' and for the wealth of new material that emerges."
--Il Sole 24 Ore

"A philosopher-historian of great lucidity, author of always innovative books."
--La Stampa

"Losurdo is almost unbelievably well read."
