The limits of state action by Wilhelm von Humboldt( Book )

31 editions published between 1945 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Limits of State Action, by "Germany's greatest philosopher of freedom," as F.A. Hayek called him, has an exuberance and attention to principle that makes it a valuable introduction to classical liberal political thought. Humboldt uniquely combines the ancient concern for human excellence and the modern concern for what has come to be known as negative liberty. Neither natural rights-based (as the term is usually understood) nor explicitly utilitarian, Humboldt's argument holds that individual self-development can flower to the maximum extent only when governmental activity is limited to providing security (i.e., preventing harm to others). He discusses criteria for permitting the state to limit individual actions and suggests ways of confining the state to its proper bounds. In a time when scholars throughout the world are reexamining the basis of political and social structure, Humboldt's arguments against state promotion of citizen welfare and state interference with private acts make this book especially relevant. -- from back cover

That noble science of politics : a study in nineteenth-century intellectual history by Stefan Collini( Book )

26 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this unusual and important work, three well-known historians of ideas examine the diverse forms taken in nineteenth-century Britain by the aspiration to develop what was then known as a 'science of politics'. This aspiration encompassed a more extensive and ambitious range of concerns than is implied by the modern term 'political science': in fact, as this book demonstrates, it remained the overarching category under which many nineteenth-century thinkers grouped their attempts to achieve systematic understanding of man's common life. As a result of both the over-concentration on closed abstract systems of thought and the intrusion of concerns which pervade much writing in the history of political theory and of the social sciences, these attempts have since been neglected or misrepresented. By deliberately avoiding such approaches, this book restores the subject to its centrality in the intellectual life and political culture of nineteenth-century Britain"--Publisher description

The history of the Norman conquest of England by Edward A Freeman( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward Augustus Freeman (1823-1892) was Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford, and one of the pre-eminent historians of his generation. Politics was a constant interest for Freeman, who was also a regular contributor to the Saturday Review. While he wrote on a variety of historical topics, from ancient Greece to the German Federation, and had a great interest in architecture, this six-volume work, published between 1867 and 1879, was his magnum opus. Freeman reconsiders how the history of the Conquest is understood and examines its causes and results, examining the history of medieval England from the fifth until the twelfth centuries. Volume 6 provides a comprehensive index for the set. These volumes will interest both scholars of early England and the Conquest and modern historiographers
