Summary:
This volume explores moral and legal issues relating to the concept of sovereignty across four areas. The essays in Part I address foundational questions about the nature of sovereignty and seek to trace the ways in which the traditional concept of sovereignty laid the foundation for the modern conception of executive authority. The essays in Part II examine the tension between the executive's duty to act expeditiously for the public interest and the executive's duty to gain citizens' consent for his or her actions.
