The matador's cape : America's reckless response to terror by Stephen Holmes( )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Matador's Cape delves into the snarled causes and devastating consequences of American policy at home and abroad since 9/11. In a collection of essays, the author explores Washington's seemingly chronic inability to bring "the enemy" into focus, detailing the ideological, bureaucratic, electoral, and (not least) emotional forces that have warped America's understanding of, and response to, the terrorist threat. He also shows how the gratuitous and murderous shift of attention from al Qaeda to Iraq was shaped by a series of misleading theoretical perspectives on the end of deterrence, the clash of civilizations, humanitarian intervention, unilateralism, democratization, torture, intelligence gathering, and wartime expansions of presidential power. The author's breadth of knowledge on the War on Terror leads to conclusions about present-day America that are at once sobering in their depth of reference and inspiring in their global perspective."--Jacket
The cost of rights : why liberty depends on taxes by Stephen Holmes( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All legally enforceable rights cost money. A practical, commonsense notion? Yes, but one ignored by almost everyone, from libertarian ideologues to Supreme Court justices to human rights advocates. The simple insight that rights are expensive reminds us that freedom is not violated by a government that taxes and spends, but requires it - and requires a citizenry vigilant about how money is allocated. Laying bare the folly of some of our most cherished myths about rights, this groundbreaking tract will permanently change the terms of our most critical and contentious political debates

The beginning of politics : power in the biblical Book of Samuel by Moshe Halbertal( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Book of Samuel is universally acknowledged as one of the supreme achievements of biblical literature. Yet the book's anonymous author was more than an inspired storyteller. The author was also an uncannily astute observer of political life and the moral compromises and contradictions that the struggle for power inevitably entails. The Beginning of Politics mines the story of Israel's first two kings to unearth a natural history of power, providing a forceful new reading of what is arguably the first and greatest work of Western political thought. Moshe Halbertal and Stephen Holmes show how the beautifully crafted narratives of Saul and David cut to the core of politics, exploring themes that resonate wherever political power is at stake. Through stories such as Saul's madness, David's murder of Uriah, the rape of Tamar, and the rebellion of Absalom, the book's author deepens our understanding not only of the necessity of sovereign rule but also of its costs--to the people it is intended to protect and to those who wield it. What emerges from the meticulous analysis of these narratives includes such themes as the corrosive grip of power on those who hold and compete for power; the ways in which political violence unleashed by the sovereign on his own subjects is rooted in the paranoia of the isolated ruler and the deniability fostered by hierarchical action through proxies; and the intensity with which the tragic conflict between political loyalty and family loyalty explodes when the ruler's bloodline is made into the guarantor of the all-important continuity of sovereign power.--
Behemoth ; or, The long Parliament by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Behemoth is Thomas Hobbes's narrative of the English Civil Wars from the beginning of the Scottish revolution in 1637 to the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. It is his only composition to address directly the history of the events which formed the context of his writings in Leviathan and elsewhere on sovereignty and the government of the Church. Although presented as an account of past events, it conceals a vigorous attack on the values of the religious and political establishment of Restoration England. This is the first fully scholarly edition of the work, and the first new edition of the text since 1889. Based on Hobbes's own presentation manuscript, it includes for the first time an accurate transcription of the passages which Hobbes had deleted in the text, and notes made by early readers."--Jacket

"Exploring the history and theory of constitutionalism in a comparative perspective this account is concerned not only with the mechanics of government, but more comprehensively with the organization of state-society relations.
