Writing in Harpers, Irving Howe described it as an exhilarating performance--this, one tells oneself, is what the life of the mind can be.Berlins editor Henry Hardy has revised the text, incorporating a fifth essay that Berlin himself had wanted to include. He has also added further pieces that bear on the same topic, so that Berlins principal statements on liberty are at last available together in one volume.

Finally, in an extended preface and in appendices drawn from Berlins unpublished writings, he exhibits some of the biographical sources of Berlins lifelong preoccupation with liberalism. These additions help us to grasp the nature of Berlins inner citadel, as he called it--the core of personal conviction from which some of his most influential writing sprung.
