Reviews

A distinguished contribution; political theorists will learn much from this book and so should many non-theorists as well. To them it offers not only a series of penetrating analyses...but also an outstanding example of that working out of a tradition of thought which...is so vital to the vocation of political theory. * American Political Science Review *
