In the course of a lifetime, Jean Bodin aimed at nothing less than to encompass all the disciplines of his age in a huge encyclopedia of knowledge. In many areas, his ideas have been not only original but seminal. He made major contributions to historiography, philosophy of history, economics, political science, comparative public law and policy, religion and national philosophy. This volume brings together a selection of major articles in English, representing almost all of his intellectual interests. It is an essential collection for libraries and scholars in both humanities and social sciences.
