Editorial Reviews


"Written with laudable clarity and precision, [the book] represents a valuable compendium and introduction to the work of this gifted historian of transatlantic legal and political thought."
(Richard Schaefer H-German)

"The republication of the essays in book form can only be welcomed. . . . Stourzh's project to write of the Tocquevillian moment in western history . . . unites his historical interests into an overarching synthesis. It constitutes riches indeed."
(Jonathan Kwan H-Review)

"[An] erudite and eloquent anthology. . . . [The essays] are amazingly fresh--something that is surely attributable both to the author's erudition and his enthusiasm for the subjects he treats."
(Central European History)

"Stourzh has set a high standard of practice for the historical profession. This volume of essays justly celebrates his contributions to U.S. and European history."
(Samuel R. Williamson, Jr. Contemporary Austrian Studies)

"The intellectual originality and meticulous scholarship of the essays in this book attest to Gerald Stourzh's continuing importance as a comparative historian of incomparably deep . . . and unsurpassed dedication to responsible and morally informed scholarship."
(Aviel Roshwald Austrian History Yearbook)

"In this dialectic between connection and liberation, order and freedom of will, lies the heart of Stourzh's scholarly passion, and also his moral passion. For him to be so open and articulatte about such deep themes in a retrospective volume of academic essays is testimony to a scholarly life well lived."
(Steven Beller European History Quarterly)
