About the Author
Carl Schmitt (1888-1985) is widely acknowledged to be one of the most important and influential political theorists of the twentieth century.
Reviews
"At last Carl Schmitt's Dictatorship is available in English. His study and analysis of this concept is key to understanding the varieties of dictatorship."
--George Schwab, National Committee on American Foreign Policy

"Dictatorship is the first book ever entirely devoted to the topic of emergency powers. Written as Germany's fledgeling Weimar Republic resorted to emergency measures to confront insurrections from both the Left and the Right, Schmitt explored the historical origins and philosophical justifications of extraordinary executive action. Schmitt's Dictatorship is a fascinating historical document and a prescient, insightful resource for contemporary debates in political theory and constitutional law."
--John P. McCormick, University of Chicago
