Description

This first work in English to focus on Constant as a political theorist shows that his thinking was molded by the French Revolution of 1789 and by Napoleon's regime. Constant is identified as the first to recognize Bonapartism as a new form of despotism, arising from the theory of popular sovereignty, which is still the basis for modern Fascist and Communist regimes. His political thought is analyzed within the framework of his philosophy of history, law, ethics, and religion.A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print.
