Rousseau's explosive cry for human liberty helped to spark the French Revolution and has haunted our discussions of how we should rule one another ever since—seen as both a blueprint for political terror and as a fundamental statement of democracy.
This yearâ€™s crop of Penguin â€œGreat Ideasâ€? volumes offers another eclectic dozen works that shaped society from the ancient Greeks to the 20th century. The books are fairly no frills, but the price isnâ€™t bad.[Page 122]. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
