Sir Berlin was professor of political philosophy at Oxford during the late 50s. I used to attend his lectures as an undergraduate student. In his time Sir Berlin was considered the greatest living thinker of political and social issues. Being born in Russia and a Jew at that he was closely associated with events during the Russian Revolution and later when the state of Israel was formed. This book is the first biography oh him and gives a complete account of he evolved in a formidable authority on his times.
