about

One hundred years ago, liberalism was modernized to tackle the challenges of the time. Today, liberalism must again be renewed to ensure that freedom is protected for future generations. For a society to be maintained and evolve, Kalkman suggests that the notion of a common humanity extending to all people on this planet needs to be embraced.

Editorial Reviews

Kalkman's concept of timeless freedom is of much interest who all want an effective state characterized by free, empowered citizens who have the possibility to shape their own futures . . . It is a must read. --Hans van Baalen, MEP, President of Liberal InternationalI was particularly struck by his strong case for liberals to take on the cause of freedom for future generations, what he calls a "timeless" concept of freedom . . . This is certainly a book to be read by those who are still motivated by a liberal sensibility and want to engage in the renewal of liberal policy and practice in a global environment. --Honourable Lloyd Axworthy, Ph.D., Former Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Past-Director of the Liu Centre for the Study of Global Issues, President of the University of WinnipegBroad in scope, this clearly-written short book offers a strong defense of the need for a more defined and updated concept of "positive freedom" and describes an intriguing framework for the role of the state in supporting rights and responsibilities that, crucially, extend to future generations. --Dr. Anne M.
