Details

Today, freedom is so closely associated with the United States that most people still view America as the ultimate symbol of freedom. Vladimir Shlapentokh and Eric Beasley argue that the idea of basing American society upon unadulterated freedom in all spheres of life is both unrealistic and simplistic. This volume discusses the definition of freedom and examines the role of restrictions in everyday American life. The authors define freedom as the ability to choose one of many available alternatives.
