About the book:

"A brief but careful introduction to the major forms of the political realm since the Carolingian period in Western Europe... The author treats several prominent forms of political rule: feudal rule, rule by the Standestaat, rule by the absolute regimes, rule by the nineteenth-century constitutional state, and the rule of present-day liberal regimes. He tells his story well, with an admirably lucid and concise prose; and it is a story that is occasionally as penetrating as it is consistently informative." Anthony M. Orum, "Social Forces"
