Summary

Summary

This collection of essays offers a comparative examination of the complex issues of sovereignty, legitimacy, and rights in the English, American, and French revolutions. A symposium of historians, political philosophers, legal, and literary scholars discuss the construction of what we now identify as the liberal, democratic, and constitutional state and debate the meaning and merits of liberalism for our own time.
