Arguing that only the consent of the governed can justify authority, this monograph investigates the nature of authority and the character of the state, evaluates the modern state's claim to authority over its citizens, and assesses the theories of conventionalism, contractarianism, and communitarianism.

About the Author:

Leslie Green is an Associate Professor of Philosophy, Osgoode Hall Law School at York University, Toronto.

Review:

`Recommended for all students, undergraduate and graduate level.' Choice

`All readers should gain something from this book ... the author's identification of problems besetting the category of political obligation is always refreshing and sensible.' Political Studies

`The discussions of communitarianism and the possibility of political obligation are superb; and Green's account of current "contractarianism" is as good as any I know.' Canadian Journal of Political Science

'this admirable reflection achieves fresh perspectives on much-discussed issues and effects a distinctive amalgamation among well-rehearsed theories of authority. Green's incisive critiques of received formulations and bold if occasionally adventuresome proposals enliven a slightly tired set
of topics.'
Canadian Philosophical Review, Vol.9, No.10 and 11, Oct/Nov '89

'this admirable reflection achieves fresh perspectives on much-discussed issues'
Richard E. Flathman, The Johns Hopkins University, Canadian Philosophical Reviews Oct-Nov '89)
