Popular Sovereignty in Early Modern Constitutional Thought

Daniel Lee

Oxford Constitutional Theory

  • A clear presentation of the Roman law of property, obligations, guardianship, and Roman public law for a non-specialist readership
  • Traces the strategic use of Roman law sources in political thought, revealing how the law texts have evolved over time
  • Investigates the major early modern treatises of popular sovereignty such as Bodin's Republique, the Vindiciae contra tyrannos, Althusius' Politica, and Grotius' De jure belli ac pacis
  • Introduces the modern reader to the medieval techniques of legal analysis and transmission of legal ideas through a discussion of the medieval Gloss and commentaries on Roman law
  • Reinforces the distinction between sovereignty and democracy
