Churchill once said that “democracy is the worst form of government except for all others…” and in Popular Government, Henry Sumner Maine answers him 60 years in advance with “…unless you examine  any part of history at all.”

In this book, one of the greatest legal minds of the 19th century examines the question of governance, and finds democracy wanting. In an age where democracy has never been more fragile, Maine’s clear-eyed analysis has never been more relevant.
