BeschreibungIn The Search for Freedom, Whitney Pope is interested in how the behavior of people in different times and in different circumstances, acting with and against one another in pursuit of a myriad of both durable and changing goals, has perpetuated freedom or undermined it. Part I addresses Tocqueville's use of such concepts as authority, community, and decentralization in his analysis of freedom and order in Jacksonian democracy and during the French Revolution. Part 2 examines freedom in contemporary context by looking at large organizations: specifically, an American labor union and a large Japanese company. Part 3 turns to Sweden to assess the relationship between freedom and the modern welfare state. Pope's conclusion uses the insights gained from these case studies to flesh out a theory of freedom. An original and timely text, The Search for Freedom will be welcomed by both teachers and students.
