Paul Rahe has written an exceptionally fine book. As a historian, he places Montesquieu's, Rousseau's and Tocqueville's writings within context. Furthermore, he reads these thinkers closely as they weigh both the strengths and weaknesses of modern democracies as they drift toward soft despotism--the administrative s: Despotism is always a threat to liberty and justice.
