dc.description.abstract Canada’s preeminent political theorist, C.B. Macpherson, won his international reputation for his controversial interpretations of liberalism. This book—the first to examine the entire range of his writings—seeks to place that interpretation of liberalism within the overall framework of his intellectual development. Focusing on two key themes—property and the state—C.B. Macpherson: Dilemmas of Liberalism and Socialism tracks Macpherson’s analysis of the contradictions of liberal-democracy through all of his writings. More than a text on Macpherson, this book contains an explosive historical thesis: the notion of the quasi-market society as the common fate of contemporary capitalist and communist societies. en_US
