Isaiah Berlin and Edited by Henry Hardy

  • An expanded edition of what Isaiah Berlin himself regarded as his most important book
  • Adds a fifth essay, 'From Hope and Fear set Free', which Berlin had hoped to include in the original edition
  • Also included are three of Berlin's other writings on liberty - 'Liberty', 'The Birth of Greek Individualism', and 'Final Retrospect' - and three autobiographical pieces - 'The Purpose Justifies the Ways', 'A Letter to George Kennan' (previously unpublished), and 'Notes on Prejudice'
  • A critical bibliography by Ian Harris brings together the growing mass of literature on Berlin's work with brief critical commentary
  • An extended preface by the editor gives a fascinating insight into the struggle behind the creation of this highly influential work
