This book seeks an answer to the question: what is the principled basis of a free society marked by cultural diversity and group loyalties? It contends that a free society is an open society whose fundamental principle is the principle of freedom of association. It advances an idea of a liberal archipelago which provides a better metaphor of the free society.
