"Intensely provocative and valuable," according to BusinessWeek, with an easy command of history, philosophy, and current affairs, The Future of Freedom calls for a restoration of the balance between liberty and democracy and shows how politics and government can be made effective and relevant for our time.
A modern classic that uses historical analysis to shed light on the present, is, as the put it, "essential reading for anyone worried about the promotion and preservation of liberty." Hailed by the as "brave and ambitious...updated Tocqueville," it enjoyed extended stays on the , and bestseller lists and has been translated into eighteen languages. Prescient in laying out the distinction between democracy and liberty, the book now contains a new afterword on the United States's occupation of Iraq.
The Future of Freedom is a groundbreaking work in which Newsweek International editor Fareed Zakaria presents a penetrating and provocative analysis of the'most powerful force sweeping the world - democracy.'Tracing the rise of democracy through history, Zakaria reveals why, although democracy has broken down hierarchies, opened up closed systems, and given rise to freedom in some places, it has also fostered chaos, ethnic warfare,? and'destroyed'the very liberties and freedoms it is meant to produce. In The Future of Freedom, Zakaria calls for a re-evaluation of our beliefs in democratic ideals and, in particular, the widely held notion that more democracy means more freedom and a guarantee of greater civil and economic liberties. ?This book is a call for self-control, for a restoration of the balance between democracy and liberty,? Zakaria writes. ?It is not an argument against democracy. But it is a claim that there can be such a thing as too much democracy; too much of an emphatically good thing.' As featured in Newsweek

"A very thoughtful and intelligent book which is important for all Americans and those who would make American policy."
"Zakaria provides a much-needed intellectual framework for many current foreign policy dilemmas, arguing that the United States should support a liberalizing dictator like Pakistan's Pervez Musharraf, be wary of an elected 'thug' like Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and take care to remake Afghanistan and Iraq into societies that are not merely democratic but free."
