    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2008; US$ 49.00

    Die Frühe Neuzeit kannte eine Vielzahl von Diskursen, Performanzen und Repräsentationen, die auf eine Überhöhung des Monarchen abzielten, ohne sich jedoch zu einer kohärenten Gesamtheit zusammenzufügen. Ist das umfassende Forschungskonzept "Absolutismus" diesem heterogenen Befund angemessen? Die Beiträge gehen dieser Frage im Wesentlichen anhand von... more...

  • After Liberalismby Paul Edward Gottfried

    Princeton University Press 2001; US$ 29.95

    In this trenchant challenge to social engineering, Paul Gottfried analyzes a patricide: the slaying of nineteenth-century liberalism by the managerial state.

  • Against the Massesby Joseph V. Femia

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 134.99

    Given the almost universal assumption that democracy is a 'good thing', the goal of mankind, it is easy to forget that 'rule by the people' has been vehemently opposed by some of the most distinguished thinkers in the Western tradition.
