The First and the Last by Isaiah Berlin
The First and the Last brings Isaiah Berlin's last essay, on the problems of freedom, determinism, pluralism, Romanticism, and nationalism, together with his earliest work -- a short story written at the tender age of twelve. The personal tributes to Berlin by colleagues and friends provide the perfect introduction to his ideas.
