Republicanism: A Theory of Freedom and Government (Oxford Political Theory) by Philip Pettit (16 Sep 1999)

This page allows you to dip into Philip Pettit's now classic book, an extensively reworked argument re-establishing the foundation of republicanism, disentangled from Liberalism.



The Spirit of Modern Republicanism (Paper Only): The Moral Vision of the American Founders and the Philosophy of Locke (Exxon Lecture Series) by Pangle (1 Oct 1990)

This page allows you to dip into Thomas L Pangle's argument about Locke and the founders of the USA - looks more academic and less relevant to our present situation, it is about Neo-Classical Republicanism



Legal Republicanism: National and International Perspectives [Hardcover]
Samantha Besson (Editor), José Luis Martí (Editor)

This page allows you to dip into the sort of argument that is most relevant to the present Welsh situation with our deficient constitution : Part One sections include ' Law and Liberty ' ' Cosmopolitan Republicanism and the Rule of Law ' - Part Two is ' Republican Law ' Part Three ' National Republicanisms and the Law ' - There is a good variety of writers in this text who are drawing on several different types of argument and referring to different periods issues as well.



Godly Republicanism by Michael P. Winship (3 Apr 2012)

This page allows you to dip into the sort of argument that prevailed in the early period of Renaissance Republicanism - interests me : but no mention of Wales in the index - the scene of the action moves to the 17c American colonies as the 16c Elizabethan republican project disintegrates ...


I'm probably going to try to stick to books that you dear reader can look into for a taste of the varieties of republican thought ...



Milton was about the last gasp of Renaissance Republicanism 's attempts to found a republic based on religious ideas and as such he excites a lot of academic interest because his life and ideas touch upon so many areas of interest ... here literary and historical as well as political and religious.


Republicanism During the Early Roman Empire by Sam Wilkinson (19 Jan 2012)

This deals with ' The Evidence for Republicanism ' and ' The Discourse ' - looks readable, and not so expensive - but not so relevant either to today



Republicanism: History, Theory, Practice by Christian Nadeau and Daniel Weinstock (1 Apr 2004)

Ten essays on different aspects of Republican political theory with references to historical arguments thrown in as well as being modern : readable but keep a good dictionary to hand for some terms.



The Black Hand of Republicanism: The Fenians and History by James McConnell and Fearghal McGarry (12 May 2009)

The Irish Fenians just about destroyed republicanism in late 19c Britain ... so I guess thinking about what they did is a good idea ... or a bad one, Y lLaw Du V Y Llaw Gwyn ? The sheer breadth of their international struggle has to be noted, that they opposed imperialism on behalf of all and were internationalist republicans.



Republicanism: Volume 2, The Values of Republicanism in Early Modern Europe: A Shared European Heritage: Values of Republicanism in Early Modern ... 2 (Republicanism: A Shared European Heritage) by Martin van Gelderen and Quentin Skinner (21 Nov 2002)

This book contains three chapters on ' The Place of Women in the Republic ' and is part of a series of books published by Oxford University Press edited by van Gelderen and Skinner, the latter's a name to look out for. Here is the link to volume one -

Republicanism: Volume 1, Republicanism and Constitutionalism in Early Modern Europe: A Shared European Heritage: Republicanism and Constitutionalism ... 1 (Republicanism: A Shared European Heritage) by Martin van Gelderen and Quentin Skinner (14 Jul 2005)



Republicanism in a Modern World by John Maynor (11 Apr 2003)

I started this book but never got to finish it, it is a gloss on Pettit's book I guess but a really useful one ... contains a fairly well laid out plan of argument



Classical Humanism and Republicanism in English Political Thought, 1570-1640 (Ideas in Context) by Markku Peltonen (16 Dec 2004)

Basically about what happened in Jacobean republicanism, influenced by the uniting of England and Scotland, Wales and Ireland under one monarchy : a sort of sandwich with Bacon in the middle of it I guess.



New Sinn Féin: Irish Republicanism in the Twenty-First Century by Agnès Maillot (25 Oct 2004)

Can not ignore Sinn Fein I suppose ... but are they republican at all ?



Republicanism in Theory and Practice (Routledge/ECPR Studies in European Political Science) by Iseult Honohan, Jeremy Jennings and Professor Thomas Poguntke (29 Sep 2005)

Pricey book and seems to be a real pot of shem that picks on some very odd aspects of historical republicanism ... Introduction is available to read on this Amazon page and I'd say readable but it relies on name dropping instead of stating what it is discussing, which is interesting : developments in modern republicanism ... ?



A Political Philosophy in Public Life: Civic Republicanism in Zapatero's Spain by José Luis Martí and Philip Pettit (1 Jul 2010)

Zapetero quoted Pettit's writings in recent Spanish reforms made after the end of Francoism, Pettit here writes about Civic Republican theory as put here into practice.



Civic Republicanism and Civic Education: The Education of Citizens by Dr Andrew Peterson (12 Apr 2011)

I like the look of this ... looks as if it clearly makes an exposition of an idea that I think should be obvious policy : the state should educate people to be citizens if we want a functioning political society, not to mention cutting the crime rate.



Secret Enemies of True Republicanism by Andrew B. Smolnikar (10 Jan 2007)

The text of this is online somewhere, famously odd paranoid book.


I think that I want a break - loads of books here, do your own searches ...

... my actual choice to use up the voucher was

Radicals: Politics and Republicanism in the French Revolution - Leigh Ann Whaley

Surviving Diversity: Religion and Democratic Citizenship - Jeff Spinner-Halev

Legal Republicanism: National and International Perspectives - Samantha Besson, José Luis Martí
