From the Publisher"At last Carl Schmitt's Dictatorship is available inEnglish. His study and analysis of this concept is key tounderstanding the varieties of dictatorship."
—George Schwab, National Committee on American ForeignPolicy
"Dictatorship is the first book ever entirely devoted tothe topic of emergency powers. Written as Germany'sfledgeling Weimar Republic resorted to emergency measures toconfront insurrections from both the Left and the Right, Schmittexplored the historical origins and philosophical justifications ofextraordinary executive action. Schmitt's Dictatorship is afascinating historical document and a prescient, insightfulresource for contemporary debates in political theory andconstitutional law."
—John P. McCormick, University of Chicago
