David Hackett Fischer is University Professor at Brandeis University.

David Hackett Fischer has produced a highly readable comparative history of the United States and New Zealand as open societies ... His excellent introduction to the relative weighting of these key values in New Zealand and the United States should encourage scholars to embark on broader studies of why shared commitments to fairness and freedom have resulted in different balances in the histories of open societies. * Roberto Rabel, Journal of American History * [David Hackett Fischer] is a gifted story-teller, and he is also a skilled research technician and poser of fruitful questions. * Andrew Sharp, English Historical Review * Part travelogue, part geography primer, part journalistic reflection, Fischer's book is a masterly attempt to sketch and compare the historical development of the United States and New Zealand ... Fairness and Freedom abounds with captivating characters * Mark G. Spencer, Times Literary Supplement *
