English democratic ideas in the seventeenth century by G. P Gooch( Book )

43 editions published between 1898 and 1987 in English and held by 1,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book bears witness to remarkable width of reading and to unusual insight. It is a most skilful and, on the whole, complete sketch of democratic ideas, as developed not only in England, but in Scotland and the American colonies during the seventeenth century. By way of introduction, the author also gives some ac-count of the movement of political thought on the continent, particularly in France and Spain, in the preceding century. -- From http://www.jstor.org (Oct. 30, 2014)

Studies in the problem of sovereignty by Harold Joseph Laski( Book )

98 editions published between 1917 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An influential study of political power, originally published in 1917.

He concludes that the state is not a supreme entity; it is one association among many that must compete for the people's loyalty and obedience
The state in theory and practice by Harold Joseph Laski( Book )

70 editions published between 1935 and 2017 in English and held by 1,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timeless classic by Harold J. Laski explains the nature of the modern state by examining its characteristics, as revealed by its history. "The State in Theory and Practice" is a work that grows in significance, rather than dwindles over time. This is because, as Sidney A. Pearson, Jr. points out, Laski helped develop and expound the foundational arguments of the political left. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, even on the hard left, few people thought of Marxism, at least in its classical formulation by Laski in the 1930s, as a political alternative. Much of the interest in Laski seeks to separate the early Laski of pluralist parliamentary arguments from the later Laski of Marxism. Laski's appeal rests on subtle aspects of his science of politics that require a detailed examination before their full significance can be understood. The state is a work that operates at several layers of assumptions and implications. The significance of Laski starts with the observation that among many intellectuals on the left, the political critique of liberal democracy remains as influential after the collapse of the Soviet Union as it was when Laski wrote. The leftist critique of classical liberalism is one of the touchstones of modern political thought and Laski remains part of that tradition. Laski is one of the links between what might be called the "old left" of the pre-World War II era and the "new left" of the 1960's and later

79 editions published between 1919 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is some sort the sequel to a book on the problem of sovereignty which I published in March, 1917"--Preface
Studies in law and politics by Harold Joseph Laski( Book )

57 editions published between 1932 and 2017 in English and German and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays that comprise Studies in Law and Politics are by and large academic. But Laski had a purpose in addition to the purely scholarly: he was eagerly pursuing possibilities for social and political change. Laski sought tirelessly for opportunities to act on those possibilities and, as is the case throughout his work, his academic and political purposes have no clear boundary between them. Studies in Law of Politics was published at a crucial juncture in Laski's ideological metamorphosis. During this period he had become increasingly worried that socialists might not be able to achieve the growth of working-class power. Although the essays contained in the volume cover a wide range of topics, and a wide span of time since the mid-1920s, he brought them into unity by a common approach. Though he does not make his unifying premise immediately evident to his readers, he clearly meant to chart the growth of power of those who had previously been without influence. His goal also was to identify the problems facing growth in a highly modernized society. Studies in Law and Politics reveals Laski's growing realization that the road to socialism might be more difficult than what he had believed when he wrote his pluralist works. The book reflects the mind of a thinker who was not content to write exclusively as an academic or a political activist. His view was that, while progressive reforms have been achieved in the past, they are not easily accomplished, and obstacles to further reforms should not be underestimated. This sober work offers much insight into Laski's intellectual development, as well as the times about which he wrote
