The state by Anthony de Jasay( )

43 editions published between 1985 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The State is a brilliant analysis of some of the fundamental issues of modern political thought from the perspective, not of individuals or subjects, but of the state itself. The author poses the query, "What would you do if you were the state?" The state usually is understood as an instrument, not a personality, and it is presumed to exist so that people can achieve their common ends. However, Jasay asks, what if we suppose the state to have a will and ends of its own? To answer these questions, the author traces the logical and historical progression of the state from a modest-sized protector of life and property through its development into an "agile seducer of democratic majorities, to the welfare-dispensing drudge that it is in many countries today ... Is the rational next step a totalitarian enhancement of its power?" The State presents what has been termed "a disturbingly logical 'agenda' for the state in pursuit of its 'self-fulfillment.'"--Inside jacket flap
Social contract, free ride : a study of the public goods problem by Anthony De Jasay( )

35 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 1,426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a novel account of the public goods dilemma. The author shows how the social contract, in its quest for fairness, actually helps to breed the parasitic "free riding" it is meant to suppress. He also shows how, in the absence of taxation, many public goods would be provided by spontaneous group cooperation. This would, however, imply some degree of free riding. Unwilling to tolerate such unfairness, cooperating groups would eventually drift from voluntary to compulsory solutions, heedless of the fact that this must bring back free riding with a vengeance. The author argues that the perverse incentives created by the attempt to render public provision assured and fair are a principal cause of the poor functioning of organized society
Social justice and the Indian rope trick by Anthony De Jasay( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author challenges what many of today's social and political philosophers widely accept: that social injustice is identified with inequality and social justice with equality. Rather, Jasay argues that justice preempts so-called social justice, so any attempt to adorn equality in the robes of social justice is an illusion, a sleight of hand, 'much as the Indian rope in the notorious trick is made to stand up skyward on its own.' The fifteen articles in this collection include both published and unpublished papers written over the years 2008 to 2012"--Publisher description

Der Staat by Anthony De Jasay( )

2 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Staat ist die Erstübersetzung von Anthony de Jasays Buch The State von 1985. Das Buch ist eine Abhandlung zu Grundfragen der modernen politischen Theorie, für die der Autor eine ungewöhnliche Perspektive wählt: die des Staates. Es ist üblich (auch im Klassischen Liberalismus), den Staat als ein Instrument zu sehen, das den Menschen dazu dienen soll, gemeinsame Ziele zu verfolgen. Das weiß auch der Autor. Was aber, so Jasay, wenn wir einmal annehmen, der Staat hätte einen eigenen Willen und eigene Ziele? Zur Beantwortung dieser Frage erkundet Jasay die systematische und historische Entwicklung, die der Staat von seinen Anfängen bis in die Gegenwart hinein genommen hat; vom bescheidenen Minimalstaat, der Leben und Eigentum sichert, bis hin zum vielbeschäftigten Verführer demokratischer Mehrheiten. -- Nach Liberalismus neu gefaßt (Choice, Contract, Consent) ist Der Staat das zweite Buch Jasays, das auch in deutscher Sprache vorliegt. / »The State« -- The State is an analysis of some of the fundamental issues of modern political thought from the perspective, not of individuals or subjects, but of the state itself. What, Jasay asks, if we suppose the state to have a will and ends? To answer this question, he traces the logical and historical progression of the state from a modest-sized protector of life and property to an »agile seducer of democratic majorities«
