Liberalism: The road from serfdom. A conversation with Domenico Losurdo

Liberalism does not evolve and progress according to some internal process, but because of the historical challenges it has faced. Slavery, colonialism, anti-semitism have all been a part of this. How do religious fundamentalism, environment and immigration challenge Liberalism today? A conversation based around Domenico Losurdo's book, Liberalism, A counter history (Verso)
