This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and intellectual historian Quentin Skinner, Barber Beaumont Professor Emeritus of the Humanities at Queen Mary University of London. Quentin Skinner is considered to be one of the founders of the Cambridge School of the history of political thought. This thoughtful, detailed conversation examines how Quentin Skinner came to appreciate the importance of the distinction between the modern view of freedom and the so-called neo-Roman view, together with what it implies for our current and future political understanding.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Status Symbols, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Paradoxical Origins - Puzzled by Machiavelli

II. Presupposing the State - The triumph of the modern liberal view

III. The Perils of Arbitrary Power - Becoming a slave

IV.Freedom, Applied - Contemporary politics through the lens of arbitrary power

V. Rhetoric - Closely examining another classical Roman idea

VI. Reshaping a Moral World - Recovering important ideas

VII. Question and Answer - Resisting the lure of the canonical
