Abstract

Sovereignty and asserting the power of the people were unusually prominent themes in the news in 2016. While the title of Daniel Lee’s book suggests a purely historical focus, the author is an assistant professor in political science and makes references to important wider issues in political science at appropriate points. Lee clearly wishes to address multiple audiences, and there is much of value here for political scientists wishing to look beyond purely modern literature, those interested in the interaction between law and political thought, and intellectual history more generally. It would be a pity if this book were read only by historical specialists.
