This collection of essays in honour of political scientist Bernard Crick, follows his celebrated book "In Defence of Politics" and takes up many of the themes he addressed in it, including politics and freedom, pluralism and political action, tolerance, socialist commitment and democratic freedom, the protection of individual rights, community politics, political education, and "market order". The topicality of this book is clear, especially as Britain and the European Community set their political agendas for the rest of the century, and as the Labour Party and Liberal Democratic Party seek to redefine their current and future political roles following the 1992 general election.
