Sovereignty; an inquiry into the political good by Bertrand de Jouvenel( Book )

44 editions published between 1957 and 2011 in English and French and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who decides? Who is the Sovereign? What is a good act?" In quest of answers to these vitally important questions, Bertrand de Jouvenel examines successively the nature and history of authority, the political good, the sovereign, and liberty. His concern is with "the prospects for individual liberty in democratic societies in which sovereignty purportedly resides in the whole people of the body politic." His objective is a definition and understanding of "the canons of conduct for the public authority of a dynamic society." He writes for "whoever would exercise the duties of a citizen." Sovereignty is the sequel to Jouvenel's widely acclaimed On Power, and was originally published in 1955. The Liberty Fund edition of Sovereignty includes a foreword that places Jouvenel's work in the context of his entire corpus.--
The art of conjecture by Bertrand de Jouvenel( Book )

67 editions published between 1956 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commissions of experts regularly meet to reply to questions such as: What will be the population of the country, or even of our planet, in ten, fifteen or twenty-five years? In what proportion will production have increased, what modifications will its composition and utilizations have undergone? The attraction of efforts to forecast the future continues. That is a fact. How does it proceed? That is a problem, one on which de Jouvenel focuses on in this book.The Art of Conjecture clearly explains what the "study of the future" can mean. De Jouvenel emphasizes the logical and political problems of forecasting and discusses methods in economics, sociology, and political science by which the future can be studied. More importantly, he discusses the fallacies to which the "study of the future" is peculiarly likely to give rise. The author argues that it is natural and necessary for the population to have visions of the future. Without this, he states, we would only be able to set one opinion of the future against another. If the origins and meanings of these predictions remained obscure, only the event could decide among the opinions.If any man can be said to have created the serious "study of the future" in our time, it is Bertrand de Jouvenel. Futuribles, a periodical he created, continues to represent a major turning point in contemporary social science. Jouvenel aimed to show how "the art of conjecture" could inform prudential judgment and allow citizens and statesmen to detect troubles before they arise
The ethics of redistribution by Bertrand de Jouvenel( Book )

64 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this concise and elegant work, first published in 1952, Bertrand de Jouvenel purposely ignores the economic evidence that redistributional efforts sap incentives and are economically destructive. Rather, he stresses the commonly disregarded ethical arguments showing that redistribution is ethically indefensible for, and practically unworkable in, a complex society. A new introduction relates Jouvenel's arguments to current discussions about the redistributionist state and draws out many of the points of affinity with the works of Buchanan, Hayek, Rawls, and others.

Economics and the good life : essays on political economy by Bertrand de Jouvenel( )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bertrand de Jouvenel (1903-1987) was known in the United States primarily as a political scientist. His best-known works - On Power, Sovereignty, and The Pure Theory of Politics - all made distinctive contributions to our understanding of the modern state, and to the creation of a political science capable of civilizing that state. His work in the field of economics is relatively unknown in the United States, but like many writers in the contemporary field of political economy, de Jouvenel is not interested in expanding the claims of economy at the expense of polity. On the contrary, his thinking is governed by the oldest and most fundamental of political concerns, the definition of the good life

On power : the natural history of its growth by Bertrand de Jouvenel( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documenting the process by which government and controlling majorities have grown increasingly powerful and tyrannical, Bertrand de Jouvenel demonstrates how democracies have failed to limit the powers of government. This development Jouvenel traces all the way back to the days of royal absolutism, which established large administrative bureaucracies and thus laid the foundation of the modern omnipotent state. On Power is an important work that Professor Angelo M. Petroni of the Luigi Einaudi Center for Research in Torino, Italy, has said is "simply a book that no serious scholar of political science or political philosophy can afford to ignore."
