Books By Author Harvey C. Mansfield

Statesmanship and Party Government by Harvey C. Mansfield Statesmanship and Party Government, Paperback (March 2013)

Examines the pamphlet war between Edmund Burke and the followers of Henry St John, First Viscount Bolingbroke during the mid-eighteenth century. In this book, the author points out that while parties have always existed, the party government that we know today is possible only because parties are now considered respectable.

Manliness by Harvey C. Mansfield Manliness, Paperback (July 2007)

Drawing from science, literature, and philosophy, this study examines the layers of manliness, from vulgar aggression, to assertive manliness, to manliness as virtue, and to philosophical manliness. It shows that manliness seeks and welcomes drama, prefers times of war, conflict, and risk, and brings change or restores order at crucial moments.

Democracy in America by Harvey C. Mansfield Democracy in America, Paperback (June 2002)

This translation is considered by many to be the definitive edition of de Tocqueville's classic work. Annotated, and with substantial references, placing the work and its author in the broader contexts of political philosophy, the volume also contains a comprehensive introduction.
