These 15 essays, arranged by the author before his recent death to show the progression of his thought, may be taken as another memorial to his career. Silvert's principal concerns include the broad themes of nation and class, freedom and democracy, the nature and consequence of dependency, and the role of ideas in social and political behavior.
