Political Tolerance by Robert Weissberg

Book Description

The virtues of tolerance seem absolutely unassailable, at first glance. Yet qualified behavioural tolerance seems to have been replaced by a blank-cheque attitudinal tolerance which threatens individual liberty and stifles free speech. This argument is at the centre of this compelling book. Robert Weissberg takes a serious look at the political shifts over the past 30 years and their effect on attitudes and behaviour. What should be tolerated? Is being highly tolerant a praiseworthy virtue? Is the welcoming of differences too often merely a facade to avoid the charge of intolerance?

Polling, Policy and Public Opinion by Robert Weissberg Polling, Policy and Public Opinion, Hardback (September 2002)

The opinion poll has become common in politics and typically reveals public desires for greater government social welfare assistance. Unfortunately, polls lack basic economic restraints. This text reveals these shortcomings and demonstrates why a government ruled by the vox populi would be folly.
