Promotional Information

Major new study of European political thought in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.


'This is at once a most elegant survey and a highly original work. ... this book will be recognised as the most fertile history of political thought in the early modern period.' Ian Harris, Journal of Political Studies
"On the whole this is a stimulating, exciting treatment of the evolution of political thought. It should stimulate even more interesting work in the future by pointing our attention in productive directions." Steven Rowan, Renaissance Quarterly
