Across the world, liberal values are under attack. In this groundbreaking book, political journalist Ian Dunt tells the story of liberalism, from its birth in the epic struggle against absolute monarchy to the modern-day resistance to populism and nationalism. In a soaring narrative that stretches from the battlefields of the English Civil War to the French Revolution to the 2008 financial crash and beyond, How To Be A Liberal explains the political ideas that underpin the modern world. But it is more than that: it is a rallying cry for those who still believe in freedom and reason.
