Dunning, William Archibald  
A History of Political Theories from Rousseau to Spencer
Publisher: The Macmillan Company, 1920 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "The present work concludes the History of Political Theories of which two earlier volumes were published in 1902 and 1905 respectively. It is designed in this last volume to carry the subject through the first eight decades of the nineteenth century. Not that the year 1880 is a particularly logical stopping point. It in fact marks no era of importance in either general history or the special field which is the subject of treatment. The distinctive purpose served by the chosen date is to bring the history tyo an end while it is still history, and thus save the author from the temptation to deal with ideas that cannot, in the nature of things, be seen yet in their true perspective..." ix + 446 pages with index. Book is in GOOD to VERY GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
