Crisis and Constitutionalism. Roman Political Thought from the Fall of the Republic to the Age of Revolution.
Oxford University Press, 2016. 432p. Hardback. Important works on ancient Roman politics and law have also contributed to this Roman turn in the history of early-modern political thought. With this new work, Straumann positions himself at the forefront of this turn, and has produced a book that will speak to historians, jurists, political theorists, and philosophers alike. His erudition is towering, his analyses sharp and insightful, and he writes with clarity and occasional wit. Dan Edelstein, Global Intellectual History |a 25/10/2018 (Publisher's information).
