Dr. Floyd A. Harper’s “occupation is economics; his preoccupation is liberty. His thinking here is offered as a stimulant to independent thinking, and as an antidote to collective apathy.” (Editor’s Note). The book is divided into three sections: Part One. The Design of Liberty, Part Two. On Measuring Liberty, Part Three. The Present Problem. With five Appendices. Reprints Abraham Lincoln’s 1864 quote “The World has never had a good definition of Liberty” as a preface and on the back panel of the dust jacket.
