Professor Hinsley's book, first published in 1966, offers a general survey of the history of the theory of sovereignty which seeks to illuminate the theory's character and function by stressing the changing social, political and economic frameworks within and between the political societies in which it has developed. It also spans and connects the different intellectual aspects of the concept of sovereignty: philosophical, legal, historical and political. For this fresh edition, Professor Hinsley has wholly rewritten the last chapter and conveyed some topical concluding remarks.

Review:

'Mr Hinsley displays a rare mastery in weaving together the separate strands of the evolution of political ideas and of political organisation ... learned, stimulated, and elegantly expressed analysis of one of the most obscure central political concepts.' History

'His argument is always elegant and never diffuse: there is not a wasted sentence in the book.' The Times Literary Supplement
