Towards Great Britain. Commerce Conquest in the Thought of Algernon Sidney and Charles Davenant
Finnish Academy of Science and Letters
Annales Academiae Scientiarum Fennicae. Humaniora 301
Saarijärvi 1999, 233 pp.


This study concentrates on the discussion of commercial and military hegemony in England during the late seventeenth century. Close attention is paid to the texts of the republican martyr Algernon Sidney (1623–1683) and the prominent Tory pamphleteer Charles Davenant (1656–1714). It is argued that the convergence of Machiavellian republicanism and mercantilism was a crucial intellectual precondition of Englands rise to predominance in Europe.
