Pivoting on ideas in Paul Rahe's 1992 Republics Ancient and Modern, political scientists explore some of the enduring dilemmas of popular government and some of the changing solutions favored through time. Their topics include regime, law, and statesmanship in ancient republicanism; Montaigne and modern republicanism; the foundations of Locke's defense of political toleration and the limits of reason; Alexis de Tocqueville's new science of politics; and Tocqueville and Abraham Lincoln on modern republicanism.
