Laski’s magnum opus, this volume outlines the history and functions of state institutions which (in the author’s view) are desirable for the effective functioning of a democracy. Topics discussed include: The necessity of government; state and society; rights and power; liberty and equality; property as a theory of industrial organisation; the nature of nationalism; law as a source of authority; the functions of international organisations.


‘…One of the few political thinkers who realize that political thought must never diovrce itself from the everday world of actual politics and existing political institutions.’ Nation
