    • Abstract:
      In his book Liberalism at Large, Alexander Zevin seeks to trace this history through a study of a single publication: The Economist, which still describes itself as a newspaper rather than a magazine. Zevin, who is an editor at the New Left Review, regards The Economist as one imagines an antelope might regard a crocodile - impressed by its longevity and power, suspicious of its habitat, and wary of its bite. Both Wilson and Bagehot were broadly believers in liberal empire, and Wilson approved, for example, of the opening of China by violence. Zevin sees The Economist as representing the "dominant" strain of liberalism: the one that both gets to act upon the world and has to adapt to it. [Extracted from the article]
