Primarily recognized for his contribution to the British pluralist tradition, arguing against state sovereignty and advocating devolution of political power to non state organizations, Laskis latest writings focused on the relation between capitalism and the sovereign state. This book explores both Laksis pluralist thinking as well as his later writings on the problems of maintaining and developing democracy and freedom both within and in the relations between capitalist societies. Lamb seeks to explore Laskis work on international politics and its continuing significance to the understanding of politics and the state today.
