'Tucker and de Bellis have assembled an important collection of 19th, 20th, and 21st century authors with an interesting and often overlooked perspective on the nature of political authority, which will be challenging to anarchists and social-contract theorists alike.'―Aeon J. Skoble, author of Deleting the State: An Argument about Government
'Question: What form of government do you desire?" So asks Paul-Emile de Puydt, setting the stage for this anthology in which Aviezer Tucker and Gian Piero de Bellis introduce us to Panarchy, the normative theory which has been all but forgotten since its first treatment in 1860. Readers familiar with cosmopolitanism may find themselves in uncharted lands, from the foundational work of John Zube, to Shih Shun Liu's thesis on extraterritoriality. "Panarchy may appear radical to readers who have only known and lived in nation-states." But for those looking to transcend Westphalia and other political monopolies, or to find new ground in social contract theory, this volume offers an exciting, thought-provoking and well structured exploration of not just a theory, but also an ideal which was once overlooked, but now has a timely resonance.'―Steve Pickering, Kobe University, Japan
