The German Idea of Freedom
By Leonard Krieger
Beacon Press, 1957, 540 pp.
While this book is chiefly concerned with the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, its relevance to more current concerns--briefly suggested in the epilogue--lies in the author's very penetrating analysis of the peculiar and in many ways unique historical development of the German concepts of liberty and freedom.
