The Politics of Liberty in England and Revolutionary America

Első borító
Cambridge University Press, 2004. júl. 26. - 459 oldal
This study examines the philosophical origins of the Anglo-American political and constitutional tradition in seventeenth century England and traces the historical development of these ideas from the Glorious Revolution in England in 1688 through to the American Revolution. It illuminates the source of modern liberal, republican, and conservative ideas about rights and government by exploring the philosophical debate between British and Americans that lay at the root of the American Revolution. Whereas most other books on this subject tend to focus exclusively on political theory or historical events, this study combines in-depth philosophical analysis and historical context in a way that will be of interest to political theorists, historians, and students of American and British studies alike.
