I love theory, history, and non fiction in general. That being said, I could not get through even half of this book. The reading style was wooden and it was like being at the worst college lecture.

As an American, I had always traced the roots of freedom back through philosophers from the Scottish Enlightenment, the School of Salamanca, Aquinas, and back to Plato. This book gave another historical perspective on the roots of freedom and the curious fact that English speaking nations seem further ahead than their neighbors.
Hannan's work suffers from only one lingering question - why did Eastern nations like Korea adopt this tradition? They do not speak English but have unleashed a firestorm of invention. It seems the Christian connection might prove deeper than the Anglosphere one, but I am sure Hannan has an answer.
