Description

From the IHS Vault: Dr. Davies explains how classical liberal ideas grew as an intellectual movement in the eighteenth century and gradually gained popular support. This rise of political ideas based on free markets and individual liberty achieved several notable political goals in the nineteenth century, such as abolition of slavery, extension of the franchise, and freer international trade. Filmed at the 2006 IHS seminar “Advanced Studies in Freedom” at Bryn Mawr College. Produced by Inextinguishable Productions.
