Overview of Political Theory
The enterprise is to keep afloat on an even keel; the sea is both friend and enemy: and the seamanship consists in using the resources of a traditional manner of behaviour in order to make a friend of every hostile occasion. And it applies to the state's international journey as much as it does to the scope and substance of domestic political activity. Most users should sign in with their email address.

Preface page vii Rationalism in Politics I. The Activity of being an Historian On being Conservative Of these essays, composed during the last twelve years, seven were first published elsewhere. Each was written for a different occasion, but they seem to me to go together well enough to be put together. They are all concerned with doing, understanding and explaining; with different modes of these activities and with their relations to one another.
