Most widely held works by Cary J Nederman
The statesman's book of John of Salisbury, being the fourth, fifth, and sixth books, and selections from the seventh and eighth books, of the Policraticus by John( Book )
32 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 621 libraries worldwide
John of Salisbury (c. 1115-1180) was the foremost political theorist of his age. He was trained in scholastic theology and philosophy at Paris, and his writings are invaluable for summarizing many of the metaphysical speculations of his time. The Policraticus is his main work, and is regarded as the first complete work of political theory to be written in the Latin Middle Ages. Cary Nederman's new edition and translation, currently the only version available in English, is primarily aimed at undergraduate students of the history of political thought and medieval history. His new translation shows how important this text is in understanding the mores, forms of conduct and beliefs of the most powerful and learned segments of twelfth century Western Europe

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 452 libraries worldwide
Beyond the persecuting society : religious toleration before the Enlightenment by John Christian Laursen( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 libraries worldwide
"There is a Myth - easily shattered - that Western societies since the Enlightenment have been dedicated to the ideal of protecting the differences between individuals and groups, and another - too readily accepted - that before the rise of secularism in the modern period, intolerance and persecution held sway throughout Europe. In Beyond the Persecuting Society John Christian Laursen, Cary J. Nederman, and nine other scholars dismantle this second generalization. If intolerance and religious persecution have been at the root of some of the greatest suffering in human history, it is nevertheless the case that toleration was practiced and theorized in medieval and early modern Europe on a scale few have realized."--BOOK JACKET. "Beyond the Persecuting Society constructs a mosaic of pieces of the history of toleration in the Middle Ages, the long sixteenth century, and the seventeenth century. Christians and Jews, the English, French, Germans, Dutch, Swiss, Italians, and Spanish had their proponents of and experiments with tolerance well before John Locke penned his famous Letter Concerning Toleration, the authors demonstrate. Moving from Abelard to Aphra Behn, from the apology for the gentiles of the fourteenth-century Talmudic scholar Menahem ben Solomon Ha-Me'iri to the rejection of intolerance in the "New Israel" of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Beyond the Persecuting Society offers a detailed and decisive correction to a vision of the past as any less complex in its embrace and abhorrence of diversity than the present."--Jacket

Talking democracy : historical perspectives on rhetoric and democracy ( Book )

But for all this emphasis on the discursive and historical dimensions of democracy, these theorists have generally neglected the rich resources available in the history of rhetorical theory and practice. It is the purpose of Talking Democracy to resurrect this history and show how attention to rhetoric can help lead to a better understanding of both the strengths and limitations of current theories of deliberative democracy."--Jacket

Western political thought in dialogue with Asia by Takashi Shōgimen( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 136 libraries worldwide
Given the rise of globalization and coinciding increase in cultural clashes among diverse nations, it has become eminently clear to scholars of political thought that there exists a critical gap in the knowledge of non-Western philosophies and how Western thought has been influenced by them. This gap has led to a severely diminished capacity of both state and nonstate actors to communicate effectively on a global scale. The political theorists, area scholars, and intellectual historians gathered here by Takashi Shogimen and Cary J. Nederman examine the exchange of political ideas between Europe and Asia from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century. They establish the need for comparative political thought, showing that in order to fully grasp the origins and achievements of the West, historians of political thought must incorporate Asian political discourse and ideas into their understanding. By engaging in comparative studies, this volume proves the necessity of a cross-disciplinary approach in guiding the study of the global history of political thought

Religion, power, and resistance from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries : playing the heresy card by Karen Bollermann( Book )
10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 91 libraries worldwide
Accusations of heresy did not arise in a vacuum during the Middle Ages. Polemicists and inquisitors had their own agendas, often involving lay or ecclesiastical politics. Heresy and treason became equated by the thirteenth century, opening the way for stronger measures against dissenters. The present volume addresses the myriad ways in which heresy accusations could be employed to fulfill political aims, from managing the effects of intellectual dissent on popular movements, to manipulating the heresy topos, to mediating the large-scale relationship between ecclesiastical and secular politics, both in Christendom and in the Islamic world
