The most fundamental definition of liberty is that people are free from violence, intimidation, and other demeaning acts.

Acemoglu and Robinson examine how and why human societies have achieved liberty—or failed to achieve it. Believing that liberty is a basic aspiration of all human beings, they examine why it has been rare in history—and is rare today.
