About the book:

This work traces the origin and development of the idea of freedom in Western culture. It deals with three distinct forms of freedom: personal freedom; civic freedom (the right to participate in public life); and sovereign freedom (the right to exercise power over others). The book examines the relationships between the idea of freedom and the institution, and argues that women, as domestic slaves and the spoils of war, were the first to articulate the cry for personal liberty.
