Lectures on the French revolution by John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton Acton( Book )

38 editions published between 1910 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the movement of the Revolution from constitutional monarchy to popular tyranny, stressing the various errors, both theoretical and practical, which led to the Reign of Terror. Liberal in his point of view, deeply concerned with the problem of freedom, the author illustrates how a theoretical misconception -- the belief that the Revolution must concern itself with an attack on the executive -- led to the most tragic consequences. The king had already assented to the limitations of his powers; what ought to have been feared, however, was legislative irresponsibility. An additional unsolved problem, which had diastrous results, was the relationship of Church and State. It is the author's belief that had a Concordat been worked out, such as the one negotiated by Napoleon, the history of the Revolution might have been different

The Pluralist theory of the state : selected writings of G.D.H. Cole, J.N. Figgis, and H.J. Laski by G. D. H Cole( Book )

14 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English political pluralism is a challenging school of political thought, neglected in recent years but now enjoying a revival of interest. It is particularly relevant today because it offers a critique of centralized sovereign state power. The leading theorists of the pluralist state were G.D.H. Cole, J.N. Figgis and H.J. Laski, and this volume brings together their most important ideas, making accessible a crucial body of work on radical political theory. It includes their major writings, mostly out of print and difficult to obtain, and here gathered together in an anthology for the first time. Current in the first two decades of this century, English political pluralism offered a convincing critique of state sovereignty and proposed a decentralized and federated form of authority - pluralism - in which the affairs of society would be conducted by self-governing and independent associations. Paul Hirst's comprehensive introduction situates English political pluralism historically and gives a critical account of its main theoretical themes and the debate surrounding them.; The book will be of interest to those who see radical reform as vital for the future health of democracy, to students of political theory and the history of political thought and also to students of jurisprudence and legal theory interested in the pluralist debate as it affects the concept of legal sovereignty
