The Tyranny of Words by Stuart Chase was a challenge to everyone to ponder deeply the meaning of words. This book, by Dorothy Fosdick, is devoted to the study of one word, liberty. The first part of the book presents a multitude of definitions, drawn from a multitude of sources. She then proceeds to destroy various theories and assumptions of the meaning of liberty. And then to rebuild its true and varied significance. A book for the student -- not for the general reader. Limited in appeal.
