A disappointing read. Poor arrangement of the themes in a simplified linear way. No explanatory insights offered by the author. Predictable. Moreover, Dr Mukherjee seems to be a propagandist of liberalism which harms the space of argumentation. Though as a textbook it might be useful for interested readers.

I have the privilege of studying at the university where Professor Mukherjee is the Chancellor and Professor of History. I have attended some of his classes and been impressed by his command of the subject and style of delivery, and wanted to know how far his expertise was translated on to his writing. This was a major reason for my picking up this book, as also was my interest in the subject, and I must say that it was a worthy read.

Professor Mukherjee starts the book - closer to a long essay

Liberalism, as it was viewed from the inception of this idea in 19th century to changes/contradictions which were embedded on this idea and have become more and more evident in 21st century. This book tries to understand the poltical changes in the world from the lens of liberalism and in doing so highlights its various shades especially the origin of differences in economic liberalism and social liberalism!

The author has done an excellent job in simplifying the concept of liberalism and its struggles in the twenty-first century. This book is a must for anyone who struggles to understand the present-days crisis in the liberal countries.

Readable history of liberalism, especially in Indian context. Explains why things have gone so wrong.
