Modern Free Society and Its Nemesis : Liberty versus Conservatism in the New Millennium
Modern Free Society and Its Nemesis examines contemporary free society in relation to conservatism as its possible negation. Analyzing the impact of conservatism on such attributes of a free society as civil liberties, political democracy and economic freedom, it redefines a free society and its constitutive principles of liberty, equality and justice. It also reconsiders conservatism, including its social foundations, characteristics and types, as well as its relations to liberalism. Milan Zafirovski concentrates specifically on the effects of conservatism on the civil sphere, political democracy, and the economy, as integral elements of a free society.

Zafirovski's book provides much needed clarification of liberalism and conservatism and draws attention to the myriad present dangers of institutional or cultural lag in this era of Great Capitalist Restoration. This is an important book which should enjoy wide attention in the contemporary political economy. -- James Ronald Stanfield, Emeritus Professor, Colorado State University
